Sign in with Apple

iOS mobile apps must display the Sign in with Apple option even if they also use other social providers such as Facebook Connect, Google Connect or some other social login provider. To use Sign in with Apple with ReachFive, you need your Apple App ID, Service ID, and Key. These are found in your Apple Developer account.

You must have an Apple Developer Program membership with the App Manager role to use the Sign in with Apple feature and follow these instructions.

Default values

The default public profile values for Apple are:

  • name

  • email

Best Practice

Even if it’s mandatory for your iOS App to use Facebook and/or Google connect, we still highly recommend pushing the Sign in with Apple option on your websites to offer a consistent authentication experience to your customers.
