Wouldn't a similar SDK make sense also for Android, namely when using
non-Google IdPs/AS?

> Recently the Google Identity team open sourced AppAuth for iOS
> <https://openid.github.io/AppAuth-iOS> under the OpenID Foundation.
> AppAuth is a client SDK for OAuth and OpenID Connect that follows the best
> practices <https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-oauth-native-apps> for
> doing standards-based auth in apps, including using the in-app browser tab
> mode of Safari (SFSafariViewController) for user interaction, and has
> in-built support for PKCE <https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7636>.
> You can fork the repository <https://openid.github.io/AppAuth-iOS> on
> Github, and it's available as a CocoaPod
> <https://cocoapods.org/pods/AppAuth>. If you have an iOS development
> environment with CocoaPods, you can take it for a spin by running pod try
> AppAuth from your command line (see the sample's readme
> <https://github.com/openid/AppAuth-iOS/blob/master/Example/README.md> if
> you do). Comprehensive API docs
> <https://openid.github.io/AppAuth-iOS/docs/latest/annotated.html> are
> available.
> I gave a talk <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppeU8yeI_ks> at the OpenID
> Summit Tokyo last year which outlines some of the motivations behind this
> effort.
