πŸ“– How to use

At first, import SFUserFriendlySymbols.

β—† UIKit

for example, if you want use this system symbol named face.smiling


symbol names changed into lower camel cases in SFUserFriendlySymbols.

face.smiling -> faceSmiling

select lower camel cased symbols as the parameter in the initializer.

let image = UIImage(symbol: .faceSmiling)

unfortunately,there are some symbol names which start with numbers.


the example is 1.circle.in this case,the enum case start with _.

let image = UIImage(symbol: ._1Circle)

β—† SwiftUI

Image(symbol: .faceSmiling)

β—† Categorized Symbols

There are 23 categories as with that you can see on SF Symbols App. they return symbols which can use on your target os version.

All Symbols




Other categories

For example, when you use symbols categorized as Weather

let weatherSymbols = SFSymbols.Category.weather


let weatherSymbols = SFSymbols.weatherSymbols

❓ Why UserFriendly?

Why this name of SF Symbols library includes UserFriendly?

The symbol can't use and you can know with the alert on Xcode when your lower OS target version doesn't reach available version of the given symbol.


And also, you don't need to type system name when you intialize images with any symbols.

There is just one word. "Happy"

πŸ†• Features from iOS 15

You can set image palette-colored or hiralical-colored, muluticolored.

use this symbol "pc" as a sample this time.



let image = UIImage(symbol: .pc, paletteColors: [.systemPink, .yellow])



let image = UIImage(symbol: .pc, hierarchicalColor: .systemPink)



if symbols have multicolor variant, the symbol's color prefers the multicolor when they initialize with UIImage(multiColoredSymbol:)

let image = UIImage(multiColoredSymbol: .pc)
