Using SwiftUI to build next-generation apps means that it’s super important to be able to customize the size of your Views based on the platform you’re deploying on.

Apple has released the presentationDetents modifier API’s to SwiftUI so it’s super easy to deploy sheets or similar with various sizes.

struct ContentView: View {
    @State private var showSettings = false
    var body: some View {
        Button("View Settings") {
            showSettings = true
        .sheet(isPresented: $showSettings) {
                .presentationDetents([.medium, .large])

struct SettingsView: View {
    var body: some View {
        Text("Settings Coming Soon")

Take your example here, you’re deploying a very basic View that displays some Text, you’re displaying it using a sheet View type but you can define the presentationDetents.

The options available are:

  • .medium
  • .large
  • .height()
  • .fraction

You can go ahead and play around with the various options.
