Search dictionaries specify the attributes for the keychain item you want to update or create. Neither the name, trademarks, service marks or logos of Apple Inc.
Can you somehow add an identifier, since from what I understand the kSecValueData means the value should be encrypted? If you specify for the key, the array size is limited only by the number of matches found in the keychain. The keychain should update the data correctly. Keychain Wrapper Apple has written an Objective-C wrapper that you can use to simplify working with the keychain, the files in the wrapper are KeychainItemWrapper.

If you run the demo application on your device, and uninstall the app, the username and password will remain in the keychain a firmware reset will, of course, remove the keychain values. The figure on the right shows the fields populated upon application startup by retrieving the username and password from the keychain.
Extract the Result Because in your search you requested multiple return types and allowed only a single result, you should expect the result to be a dictionary. Use this and chances are you'll have troubles accessing keychain in some situations with xcode 8. Does the addition of a ServiceName mean that an app can have multiple keychain items, one per service name?

After this line is done, we will print into the console the result code of SecItemAdd. One of the few things you will notice is that this search dictionary has two new keys, kSecReturnData and kSecReturnAttributes, and that they accept core foundation booleans.
Then we grab all our data, such as username and the server the password is for, and put it in variables to make our life easier. If you allow the user to select among different identities at runtime, you might want to store multiple passwords for a single server and then let the user select among the search results using the stored account as a selection key.
