Hide the status bar in ios 9


 override var prefersStatusBarHidden: Bool {      return true  }  

I got the Information From Here

  • Change func to var

  • Delete ()

  • Change -> to :

This works because a computed variable has a getter function, so the function you were implementing before simply turns into the getter function

2016 onwards: simple Thing like

On your info.plist add the following two property for statusBar Hidden

View controller-based status bar appearance (Boolean: NO)

Status bar is initially hidden (Boolean: YES)

Old answers ! ...

  1. add application.statusBarHidden in didFinishLaunchingWithOptions

    - (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {// Override point for customization after application launch.application.statusBarHidden = YES;return YES;}

and add

  1. in info.plist add this View controller-based status bar appearance set NO

    View controller-based status bar appearance = NO

viewcontroller based hidden set

Add method in your view controller.

Objective -C

- (BOOL)prefersStatusBarHidden {    return YES;}

Swift upto 2

override func prefersStatusBarHidden() -> Bool {return true}

(GOOD) 2016.5.17 in iOS 9.0 worked nicely.

Updated Answer

  1. Go to Info.plist file
  2. Hover on one of those lines and a (+) and (-) button will show up.
  3. Click the plus button to add new key
  4. Type in start with capital V and automatically the first choice will be View controller-based status bar appearance. Add that as the KEY.
  5. Set the VALUE to "NO"
  6. Go to you AppDelegate.m for Objective-C (for swift language: AppDelegate.swift)
  7. Add the code, inside the method

For Objective-C:

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {    [application setStatusBarHidden:YES];    return YES;}

For Swift:

func application(application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [NSObject:AnyObject]?) -> Bool {    application.statusBarHidden = true    return true}

in info.plist add the following two property.

View controller-based status bar appearance (NO)Status bar is initially hidden (YES)

I know that the documentation of setStatusBarHidden: does not mention on what use instead. But the header of UIApplication does.

// Setting statusBarHidden does nothing if your application is using the default UIViewController-based status bar system.@property(readwrite, nonatomic,getter=isStatusBarHidden) BOOL statusBarHidden NS_DEPRECATED_IOS(2_0, 9_0, "Use -[UIViewController prefersStatusBarHidden]");- (void)setStatusBarHidden:(BOOL)hidden withAnimation:(UIStatusBarAnimation)animation NS_DEPRECATED_IOS(3_2, 9_0, "Use -[UIViewController prefersStatusBarHidden]");

Here is stated that you should use the prefersStatusBarHidden on UIViewController and use view controller based statusbar styles.

All you need to do now is configure whether the view controller needs to show of hide the status bar. Like so :

- (BOOL)prefersStatusBarHidden {   return YES;}
