Why don't you want to use any third-party tool?

because others are paid and this is free thats why.

Could you describe in a bit more detail what you're trying to do? Online? Offline? Raster-based? Vector-based? Also you say below "it is working in android" so presumably you've already got something on that platform - it would help to describe what.

I would say though that there isn't as much support for iOS by "free stuff" in OSM as other platforms - the hassle factor of developing for Apple platforms being one of the main reasons.

Also, I think you've misunderstood what scai said - he's suggesting a third-party tool to display OSM data.

@aakash002: maybe I could make it a bit clearer for you: The core OpenStreetMap is just a database of the raw geodata. Nearly everything else is from the ecosystem around OpenStreetMap – often it is Free Software. You will find exactly what you are searching for in the OSM ecosystem (see Ed's answer).
