Returns OK or error.
DescriptionRequest access to the user's contacts.
Users are able to grant or deny access to contact data on a per-application basis. To request access to contact data, call CNContactStore.RequestAccesss function. This will not block the application while the user is being asked to grant or deny access. The user will only be prompted the first time access is requested; any subsequent ContactStore calls will use the existing permissions.
Later you can use CNContactStore.AuthorizationStatus to check status or CNContactStore.AuthorizationError to learn why you didn't get permissions.
The application needs to be code signed with entitlements with com.apple.security.personal-information.addressbook identifier. See also my idea here:
