How do I add a tiled image to a UIImage in Swift?

I'm making an app and want to set the background to be a texture that is tiled. Is it possible to do this with an "Image View" in Swift?

Oddly enough, you will actually be setting the backgroundColor property of the view you are working with:

<VIEW>.backgroundColor = UIColor(patternImage: UIImage(named: "<IMAGE-NAME>"))
