How to adjust List row separator visibility and color

Updated for Xcode 13.0

New in iOS 15

SwiftUI provides two modifiers to control the way row separators look with its Lists, specifically listRowSeparator() for controlling whether separators are visible or not, and listRowSeparatorTint() for controlling the separator color.

For example, if you wanted to hide the separators for all rows in your list you could write this:

List {
    ForEach(1..<100) { index in
        Text("Row \(index)")
            .listRowSeparator(.hidden)
    }
}

Download this as an Xcode project

A list with no visible separators between rows.

To adjust the color of the separator, use listRowSeparatorTint() like this:

List {
    ForEach(1..<100) { index in
        Text("Row \(index)")
            .listRowSeparatorTint(.red)
    }
}

Download this as an Xcode project

A list with thin red lines separating the rows.

Again, you can attach that to individual list rows if you want more control.

Before you ask, as far as I know there is no way to adjust the separator inset using SwiftUI.
