You want to be able to interact with the installed passes on a user’s device programmatically.
Include the PassKit.framework into your project and use the
PKPassLibrary to find the passes that
you are interested in. Passes will be of type
PKPass, so using this class you can retrieve
information about your passes.
As a prerequisite to this recipe, please make sure that you have read Recipe 23.8 and now have an Xcode iOS project that has the appropriate provisioning profile to access your passes in the user’s Passbook library.
Apple has provided the PassKit.framework for iOS developers. Using this framework, you can interact with passes that the user has installed on her devices. To be able to use this framework using the latest LLVM compiler, all you have to do is import the relevant umbrella header into your project like so:
The next thing that we are going to do is declare a private
property of type
PKPassLibrary in the
implementation file of our app delegate. The aforementioned class in
PassKit.framework will allow you to interact with the passes that have
been added to the device. While you are at it, you will also need to
know the keys in the pass.json file
that you created in Recipe 23.2 in order to be able to read values such as the departure platform and departure city. So declare these keys as well, all in the implementation ...
