You can use SF Symbols image without coding system names and if you select unavailable system image, you know it with the alert from Xcode.
Supported SF Symbols 3.3 now.
on Xcode, choose

let package = Package( dependencies: [ .package(url: "https://github.com/littleossa/SFUserFriendlySymbols", .upToNextMajor(from: "0.2.2")), ], targets: [ .target( name: "<your-target-name>", dependencies: ["SFUserFriendlySymbols"]), ] )

for example, if you want use this system symbol named
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)
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.
For example, when you use symbols categorized as Weather
let weatherSymbols = SFSymbols.Category.weather
let weatherSymbols = SFSymbols.weatherSymbols
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"
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
let image = UIImage(multiColoredSymbol: .pc)
