On this page, we get you up and running with Sentry's Apple SDK, which will automatically report errors and exceptions in your application.

If you don't already have an account and Sentry project established, head over to, then return to this page.

Sentry captures data by using an SDK within your application's runtime. These are platform-specific and allow Sentry to have a deep understanding of how your application works.

In addition to capturing errors, you can monitor interactions between multiple services or applications by enabling tracing. You can also collect and analyze performance profiles from real users with profiling. To enable tracing and/or profiling, click the corresponding checkmarks to get the code snippets.

We recommend installing the SDK with Swift Package Manager (SPM), but we also support alternate installation methods. To integrate Sentry into your Xcode project, open your App in Xcode and open File > Add Packages. Then add the SDK by entering the git repo url in the top right search field:


To capture all errors, initialize the SDK as soon as possible, such as in your AppDelegate application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method:

import Sentry

func application(_ application: UIApplication,
    didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {

    SentrySDK.start { options in
        options.dsn = ""
        options.debug = true // Enabled debug when first installing is always helpful

        // Set tracesSampleRate to 1.0 to capture 100% of transactions for performance monitoring.
        // We recommend adjusting this value in production.
        options.tracesSampleRate = 1.0

        // Sample rate for profiling, applied on top of TracesSampleRate.
        // We recommend adjusting this value in production.
        options.profilesSampleRate = 1.0

    return true

Verify that your app is sending events to Sentry by adding the following snippet, which includes an intentional error. You should see the error reported in Sentry within a few minutes.

To verify crashes, ensure you run your application without a debugger attached. Otherwise, the SDK won't capture the crash.

import Sentry

do {
    try aMethodThatMightFail()
} catch {
    SentrySDK.capture(error: error)
