Reachability returns False for Cellular network in iOS - Swift

I have this code for checking internet connection , it was working very well until I update to Xcode 8 and swift 3 . Now it returns false for Cellular network and true for WiFi network I don't know why.

This is the code :

open class Reachability {

class func isConnectedToNetwork() -> Bool {

var zeroAddress = sockaddr_in(sin_len: 0, sin_family: 0, sin_port: 0, sin_addr: in_addr(s_addr: 0), sin_zero: (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0))
zeroAddress.sin_len = UInt8(MemoryLayout.size(ofValue: zeroAddress))
zeroAddress.sin_family = sa_family_t(AF_INET)

let defaultRouteReachability = withUnsafePointer(to: &zeroAddress) {
$0.withMemoryRebound(to: sockaddr.self, capacity: 1) {zeroSockAddress in
SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithAddress(nil, zeroSockAddress)
}
}
var flags: SCNetworkReachabilityFlags = SCNetworkReachabilityFlags(rawValue: 0)
if SCNetworkReachabilityGetFlags(defaultRouteReachability!, &flags) == false {
return false
}

let isReachable = flags == .reachable
let needsConnection = flags == .connectionRequired

return isReachable && !needsConnection

}
}


Now how to make this function return true for both wifi and cellular connection ?

Answer

I'm using the following code and it's working perfect.

For Swift3

import Foundation
import SystemConfiguration

public class Reachability {

    class func isConnectedToNetwork() -> Bool {

        var zeroAddress = sockaddr_in()
        zeroAddress.sin_len = UInt8(MemoryLayout.size(ofValue: zeroAddress))
        zeroAddress.sin_family = sa_family_t(AF_INET)

        let defaultRouteReachability = withUnsafePointer(to: &zeroAddress) {
            $0.withMemoryRebound(to: sockaddr.self, capacity: 1) {zeroSockAddress in
                SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithAddress(nil, zeroSockAddress)
            }
        }

        var flags : SCNetworkReachabilityFlags = []
        if !SCNetworkReachabilityGetFlags(defaultRouteReachability!, &flags) {
            return false
        }

        let isReachable = flags.contains(.reachable)
        let needsConnection = flags.contains(.connectionRequired)
        return (isReachable && !needsConnection)
    }

}

Called by:

if Reachability.isConnectedToNetwork() == true {
    xy
} else {
    yz
}
