Default styles

A newer version of the Maps SDK is available

This page uses v6.4.1 of the Mapbox Maps SDK. A newer version of the SDK is available. Learn about the latest version, v11.5.1, in the Maps SDK documentation.

To use one of the default styles provided by Mapbox, call the corresponding class method of MGLStyle, then pass the return value into -[MGLMapView setStyleURL:].

If you’re using an Interface Builder storyboard, set the Style URL inspectable to a URL such as mapbox://styles/mapbox/light-v11.

import Mapbox


class DefaultStylesExample_Swift: UIViewController {
override func viewDidLoad() {

let mapView = MGLMapView(frame: view.bounds, styleURL: MGLStyle.outdoorsStyleURL)

// Tint the ℹ️ button and the user location annotation.
mapView.tintColor = .darkGray

mapView.autoresizingMask = [.flexibleWidth, .flexibleHeight]

// Set the map’s center coordinate and zoom level.
mapView.setCenter(CLLocationCoordinate2D(latitude: 51.50713, longitude: -0.10957),
zoomLevel: 13, animated: false)
