Hide the status bar in ios 9

How do you hide the status bar in ios 9?

This is now deprecated:

[UIApplication sharedApplication] setStatusBarHidden:YES];

Answer Source

try this

  1. add application.statusBarHidden in didFinishLaunchingWithOptions

    - (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
    // Override point for customization after application launch.
    application.statusBarHidden = YES;
    return YES;

and add

  1. in info.plist add this View controller-based status bar appearance set NO

    View controller-based status bar appearance = NO

viewcontroller based hidden set

Add method in your view controller.

- (BOOL)prefersStatusBarHidden {
    return YES;

(GOOD) 2016.5.17 in iOS 9.0 worked nicely.

Updated Answer

  1. Go to Info.plist file
  2. Hover on one of those lines and a (+) and (-) button will show up.
  3. Click the plus button to add new key
  4. Type in start with capital V and automatically the first choice will be View controller-based status bar appearance. Add that as the KEY.
  5. Set the VALUE to "NO"
  6. Go to you AppDelegate.m for Objective-C (for swift language: AppDelegate.swift)
  7. Add the code, inside the method

For Objective-C:

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
    [application setStatusBarHidden:YES];

    return YES;

For Swift:

func application(application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [NSObject:AnyObject]?) -> Bool {
    application.statusBarHidden = true

    return true
