How do I get the session authorization token from iOS sdk?

I need to have another service make a user-authenticated call into my Kinvey backend. Basic auth isn't an option. How do I get the session auth token from the iOS SDK so I can have the other service provide the "Authorization: Kinvey ___user session auth token goes here" header?

Ben, We were having an internal discussion about this exact thing. I know that it was deprecated for security purposes and I'm trying to hunt down the way to make an explicit call to get it for you. Thanks,
Obtaining the session auth token from the iOS SDK is deprecated "for security". Someone recommended making a second login call with the REST API to get the session auth back explicitly. I haven't attempted to verify this works, or what corner cases no longer work as a result.
Hey Ben, I wanted to let you know that I'm looking into this for you, it's just taking me a bit longer than expected. I will hopefully get back to you with a solution in the coming couple of days. Thanks,
