Wire iOS

The Wire mobile app has an architectural layer that we call sync engine. It is the client-side layer that processes all the data that is displayed in the mobile app. It handles network communication and authentication with the backend, push notifications, local caching of data, client-side business logic, signaling with the audio-video libraries, encryption and decryption (using encryption libraries from a lower level) and other bits and pieces.

The user interface layer of the mobile app is built on top of the sync engine, which provides the data to display to the UI. The sync engine itself is built on top of a few third-party frameworks, and uses Wire components that are shared between platforms for cryptography (Proteus/Cryptobox) and audio-video signaling (AVS).

How to build the open source client

What is included in the open source client

The project in this repository contains the Wire iOS client project. You can build the project yourself. However, there are some differences with the binary Wire iOS client available on the App Store. These differences are:

  • the open source project does not include the API keys of Vimeo, Localytics, HockeyApp and other 3rd party services.
  • the open source project links against the open source Wire audio-video-signaling (AVS) library. The binary App Store client links against an AVS version that contains proprietary improvements for the call quality.


In order to build Wire for iOS locally, it is necessary to install and setup the following tools on the local machine:

You can run brew bundle to install all development tools on your local machine, the list is given in Brewfile.

The setup script will automatically check for you that you satisfy these requirements.

How to build locally

  1. Check out the wire-ios-mono repository.
  2. From the checkout folder, run ./setup.sh. This will pull in all the necessary dependencies with Carthage and verify that you have the right version of the tools installed.
  3. Open the project wire-ios-mono.xcworkspace in Xcode
  4. Make sure the Wire-iOS app scheme is selected.
  5. Click the "Run" button in Xcode

These steps allow you to build only the Wire umbrella project, pulling in all other Wire frameworks with Carthage. If you want to modify the source/debug other Wire frameworks, you can open the Carthage/Checkouts subfolder and open the individual projects for each dependency there.

You can then use carthage bootstrap --platform ios --use-xcframeworks to rebuild the dependency and use it in the umbrella project.

Known limitations

Notifications send through Apple Push Notification service can only be received by the App Store Wire client, which is code signed with Wire's own certificate. This is a security feature enforced by Apple, as documented in Apple's Local and Remote Notification Programming Guide. Any client build from source will not be able to receive notifications.

Running security tests

To run all the security tests, you will first need to be able to build the app locally. To do this, see the "How to build locally" section above. Then, from the command line, you can run the security tests with the following commands:

xcodebuild test \
  -workspace wire-ios-mono.xcworkspace \
  -scheme Wire-iOS \
  -testPlan SecurityTests \
  -destination 'platform=iOS Simulator,name=iPhone 14,OS=17.0.1'

  xcodebuild test \
  -workspace wire-ios-mono.xcworkspace \
  -scheme WireSyncEngine \
  -testPlan SecurityTests \
  -destination 'platform=iOS Simulator,name=iPhone 14,OS=17.0.1'

  xcodebuild test \
  -workspace wire-ios-mono.xcworkspace \
  -scheme WireDataModel \
  -testPlan SecurityTests \
  -destination 'platform=iOS Simulator,name=iPhone 14,OS=17.0.1'

xcodebuild will print the test results to the console. It will also log the location of the test result (in .xcresult format), which you can open with Xcode to see the test results in a more friendly format.
