What is Private API?

February 8, 2010 § 2 Comments

Private APIs or non-public APIs or undocumented APIs are APIs that Apple doesn’t list in API documentation. Apple doesn’t publish a white list or black list.

Private API examples:

With latest iPhone SDK 3.1 Xcode would give warnings for any SPI usage after compiling. Currently there is no official or unofficial tools to detect such private APIs.

Note: If there’s a critical bug fix, send an email to AppReview@apple.com
