Extending iOS 13 UIColor

iOS 13 comes with a new color scheme, and to access the old system colors, you will need to reach for UIColor and maybe create a Color object, like so:

let ourColor = Color(UIColor.systemGray5)

Extending the UIColor class is made easy by switch extension.

extension UIColor {
    var asColor: Color {
        return Color(self)

Use it like so:

let ourColor = UIColor.systemGray5.asColor
