The LINE SDK 5.0.0 for iOS has been released. For installation and usage instructions, see the LINE SDK for iOS guide.

# Changes

# LINE Login v2.1 and Social API v2.1 are supported

You can set permissions to be granted to your app as scopes when users log in to your app with the LINE Login. By setting scopes, you can get ID tokens when you get access tokens. Those tokens contain user information according to the scopes you set with the login request.

You can display an option to add your bot as a friend to users logging in to your app. You can get the friendship status between users and your bot with login responses and the Social API.
