Release notes for 200.3

This page provides details about enhancements in the 200.3 release of ArcGIS Maps SDK for Swift. It also lists deprecations, resolved issues, known issues, and more.


Geometry editor

Enhanced feedback for vertex addition

The GeometryEditor now displays additional feedback graphics when adding vertices using the VertexTool. This is supported for input devices with a hover event (such as a mouse move without a mouse button press).

GeometryEditor enhanced feedback for adding vertices


New basemap styles

The following basemap styles are new with this release:

  • ArcGIS Human Geography
  • ArcGIS Human Geography (Dark)
  • Open Street Map Blueprint
  • Open Street Map Hybrid
  • Open Street Map Navigation
  • Open Street Map Navigation (Dark)

Use the corresponding Basemap.Style enum value to specify the basemap style when creating a Basemap object.

Basemap styles

Language support for basemap place labels

The new BasemapStyleParameters class supports specifying a specific language to use for place name labels displayed on the basemap, or for defining a language strategy (such as using the local place names or the application's locale).

Feature reduction

Define clustering on point feature layers

The previous release introduced support for honoring clustering on point features in dynamic rendering mode when defined in a web map. With this release, you can define a new FeatureReduction or update existing FeatureReduction properties on point feature layers rendered in dynamic mode. This release also adds support for clustering on a FeatureCollectionLayer.

Here are the key capabilities now available:

  • Define rendering for clusters
  • Define labels for clusters
  • Configure popups on clusters
  • Set a clustering radius
  • Add aggregate or summary fields
  • Define min/max sizes for cluster symbols
  • Set a scale threshold for clustering

Here are a few known issues with clustering in this release:

Utility networks

Validate utility network topology

This SDK now supports validating network topology when using a utility network from a feature service. This is accomplished using the UtilityNetwork.validateNetworkTopology(Envelope) method, which automatically updates the UtilityNetwork.dirtyAreaTable. Like the ArcGIS Pro Validate Network Topology tool, this method cleans up dirty areas by updating the network index used by tracing to match any edited features. Check the UtilityNetworkCapabilities.supportsValidateNetworkTopology property to determine if your connected utility networks support validation with this SDK.

Utility network state

This SDK now provides the ability to get the current state of the utility network by checking UtilityNetwork.state for utility network version 4 and later. If UtilityNetworkCapabilities.supportsNetworkState returns true, you can call this method to determine whether network topology is enabled or if there are any dirty areas in your network that may impact trace results. To get more information about dirty areas in your utility network, you can query the dirty area table referenced through the UtilityNetwork.dirtyAreaTable property. This property is available after the utility network has loaded. This table may also be added as a FeatureLayer to display the dirty area features on the map. Submitting edits to a utility network feature service through calls to ServiceGeodatabase.applyEdits() will automatically update this table with any new or updated dirty area features.

Feature editing

Check the ability to apply edits using a service geodatabase

When applying edits to a feature service, it is recommended to use ServiceGeodatabase.applyEdits() to allow multiple tables to be edited in the same transaction and to allow additional edits made on the server to be reflected locally. However, some configurations of data do not support applying edits with a service geodatabase. For example, when some layers or tables in the feature service do not support global IDs.

With this release, you can check the ArcGISFeatureServiceInfo.canUseServiceGeodatabaseApplyEdits property before calling ServiceGeodatabase.applyEdits(). If this property is false, you can fall back to using the ServiceFeatureTable.applyEdits() method on the edited tables in the ServiceGeodatabase.


Label definition geometry strategy

With this release, a new LabelDefinition.geometryStrategy property allows users to specify whether labeling of polygon or line features uses the original geometry (which may be off-screen) or the geometry clipped to the current viewing extent.

LabelDefinition.placement still determines where to position the label with respect to the original or clipped geometry.

Indoor positioning

Improved Bluetooth (BLE) positioning

With this release, the indoors positioning algorithm has been strengthened against noisy and crowded environments. This results in an improved blue dot experience in environments that are densely populated with people or that contain many interfering radio signals.


Support for Arcade 1.24

This SDK now supports Arcade 1.24. Enhancements include the following:

Support for Arcade 1.25

This SDK now supports Arcade 1.25. Enhancements include the following:

  • Support for the new FilterBySubtypeCode function.

Projection engine updates


  • New and updated EPSG definitions for coordinate systems and transformations through release 10.093.
  • New geographic and projected coordinate systems for Algeria, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Chile, Colombia, older Danish systems, French territories, Germany, Illinois, Latvia, UK railways, and WGS 1984 BE UTM zones.
  • New vertical transformations based on geoids, quasi-geoids, or other conversion grids can transform to or between gravity-related vertical coordinate systems for Austria, Canada, Denmark, Faroe Islands, French Antilles, Germany, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Papua New Guinea, Poland, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, and Sweden.
  • New and updated geographic transformations for Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, French territories, Hong Kong, Kyrgyzstan, UK railways, timed-fixed transformations between WGS 1984 realizations.

SDK enhancements

Authentication using smart cards

A personal identity verification (PIV) smart card can now be used for authentication when connecting to ArcGIS Enterprise. This requires iOS 16 and iPadOS 16.1, or later, which adds support for physical smart card authentication using an NFC or a CCID class-compliant reader. The Authenticator toolkit component has been enhanced to automatically use the identity available on an attached smart card when connecting to a PKI secured ArcGIS resource. You can also programmatically create a credential using NetworkCredential.smartcard(pivToken:) to use the identity on the smart card for authentication.

Augmented Reality

The Augmented Reality (AR) toolkit components allow quick and easy integration of AR into your application for a wide variety of scenarios. The toolkit provides the following common patterns for AR:

  • Flyover: Allows you to explore a scene using your device as a window into the virtual world. A typical flyover AR scenario will start with the scene’s virtual camera positioned over an area of interest. You can walk around and reorient the device to focus on specific content in the scene.

  • Tabletop: Scene content is anchored to a physical surface, as if it were a 3D-printed model.

The toolkit uses ARKit, Apple's augmented reality framework to display the live camera feed and handle real world tracking. Refer to the documentation for more information.

Job Manager

The Job Manager toolkit component allows long running jobs to execute in the background whenever the operating system permits. This is particularly useful if a user locks the device or switches to another app while a job is in progress. Examples of these types of jobs include taking a map offline or synchronizing edits with a service. The job manager also tracks and persists information about active jobs so that they can be easily recovered and resumed if an app is terminated and then relaunched.

Dynamic Entity enhancements

A number of enhancements have been made to automatically update UI components whenever their corresponding dynamic entity changes. For example, the callout updates its location on the map to track the dynamic entity as it moves, and the popup refreshes its content to display the latest information about the dynamic entity. A new convenience SwiftUI modifier evaluateArcadeExpression(_:for:perform:) has also been added which allows you to automatically update any SwiftUI View based on an Arcade expression whenever a dynamic entity changes.

App Privacy improvements

The XCFramework files are now digitally signed to ensure software supply chain security. Also, privacy manifests have been added to help generate accurate App Privacy Nutrition labels. You can read more about these enhancements in Apple's announcement.


User facing messages and UI text has been localized into over 30 languages.
