Mac OS X and iOS Internals: To the Apple's Core
An in-depth look into Mac OS X and iOS kernels
Powering Macs, iPhones, iPads and more, OS X and iOS are becoming ubiquitous. When it comes to documentation, however, much of them are shrouded in mystery. Cocoa and Carbon, the application frameworks, are neatly described, but system programmers find the rest lacking. This indispensable guide illuminates the darkest corners of those systems, starting with an architectural overview, then drilling all the way to the core.
From architecture to implementation, this book is essential reading if you want to get serious about the internal workings of Mac OS X and iOS.
