ios - how to do a native "Pulse effect" animation on a UIButton

I would like to have some kind of pulse animation (infinite loop "scale in - scale out") on a UIButton so it gets users' attention immediately.

I saw this link How to create a pulse effect using -web-kit animation - outward rings but I was wondering if there was any way to do this only using native framework?

Any help much appreciated - code sample even better ;-)

CABasicAnimation *theAnimation;

theAnimation=[CABasicAnimation animationWithKeyPath:@"opacity"];
theAnimation.fromValue=[NSNumber numberWithFloat:1.0];
theAnimation.toValue=[NSNumber numberWithFloat:0.0];
[theLayer addAnimation:theAnimation forKey:@"animateOpacity"]; //myButton.layer instead of


let pulseAnimation = CABasicAnimation(keyPath: "opacity")
pulseAnimation.duration = 30
pulseAnimation.fromValue = 0
pulseAnimation.toValue = 1
pulseAnimation.timingFunction = CAMediaTimingFunction(name: kCAMediaTimingFunctionEaseInEaseOut)
pulseAnimation.autoreverses = true
pulseAnimation.repeatCount = FLT_MAX
self.view.layer.addAnimation(pulseAnimation, forKey: nil)
