Deep linking in iOS App enables users to seamlessly navigate to specific content within your iOS app. This user guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to set up deep linking in the app and steps for the apple-app-site-association required for the linking.

  • Create an apple-app-site-association file it looks like a json format but it is not.
  • Define the "applinks" key with an array of apps and details.
  • Within "details", specify the "appID" with your app's bundle identifier and list the paths corresponding to the content you wish to link to in your app.
{
    "applinks": {
        "apps": [],
        "details": [
            {
                "appID": "124XXX22A.com.example.myapp",
                "paths": [
                    "/path/to/content",
                    "/another/path"
                ]
            }
        ]
    }
}

appID — unique identifier of the Mobile App. It is a combination of your "Team Id" and the app’s "Bundle Id". *Both the details Team Id and Bundle Id is available in the Apple Developer Account.

  • Host the apple-app-site-association file on your website at https://<<yourdomain.com>>/apple-app-site-association or https://<<yourdomain.com>>/.well-known/apple-app-site-association

Conclusion: By following these steps, you can effectively set up deep linking with iOS apps and enable users to seamlessly transition from web links to specific content within your app, enhancing user engagement and providing a cohesive user experience.
