How to Base64 encoding on the iPhone

How do I do Base64 encoding on the iPhone?

I have found a few examples that looked promising, but could never get any of them to work on the phone.


You can see an example here.

This is for iOS7+.

I copy the code here, just in case:

// Create NSData object
NSData *nsdata = [@"iOS Developer Tips encoded in Base64"

// Get NSString from NSData object in Base64
NSString *base64Encoded = [nsdata base64EncodedStringWithOptions:0];

// Print the Base64 encoded string
NSLog(@"Encoded: %@", base64Encoded);

// Let's go the other way...

// NSData from the Base64 encoded str
NSData *nsdataFromBase64String = [[NSData alloc]
  initWithBase64EncodedString:base64Encoded options:0];

// Decoded NSString from the NSData
NSString *base64Decoded = [[NSString alloc] 
  initWithData:nsdataFromBase64String encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
NSLog(@"Decoded: %@", base64Decoded);
