Finding Altitude in Swift

i0S Swift Issue

Question or problem in the Swift programming language:

I’ve been having trouble finding a way to get the altitude of the device. Could someone give me a pointer or put together a short script that gets the altitude of the device and prints it? Only in swift. Thanks!

How to solve the problem:

Import CoreLocation

import CoreLocation

Create a locationManger variable

var locationManager:CLLocationManager = CLLocationManager()

Initialize and start updating location

override func viewDidLoad() {
    self.locationManager = CLLocationManager()
    self.locationManager.delegate = self
    self.locationManager.distanceFilter = kCLDistanceFilterNone
    self.locationManager.desiredAccuracy = kCLLocationAccuracyBest

func locationManager(manager: CLLocationManager!, didUpdateToLocation newLocation: CLLocation!, fromLocation oldLocation: CLLocation!) {
   var alt = newLocation.altitude

Hope this helps!
