Ios – Why is there extra padding at the top of the UITableView with style UITableViewStyleGrouped in iOS7


Starting in iOS7, there is additional space at the top of my UITableView's which have a style UITableViewStyleGrouped.

Here is an example:

enter image description here

The tableview starts at the first arrow, there are 35 pixels of unexplained padding, then the green header is a UIView returned by viewForHeaderInSection (where the section is 0).

Can anyone explain where this 35-pixel amount is coming from and how I can get rid of it without switching to UITableViewStylePlain?

Update (Answer):

In iOS 11 and later:

tableView.contentInsetAdjustmentBehavior = .never

Best Solution

I was helped by the following:

YouStoryboard.storyboard > YouViewController > Attributes inspector > Uncheck - Adjust scroll view insets.
