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.
