Today, virtually every non-trivial iPhone and iPad app must manage dataquickly, smoothly, reliably, and with minimal impact on the CPU to conserve battery life. Core Data, Apples ready-made data persistence layer, can help you achieve all these goals. In Core Data for iOS, two leading iOS developers teach you the entire Core Data framework from the ground up. Writing for intermediate-to-advanced iOS developers, Tim Isted and Tom Harrington thoroughly explain how Core Data is used on iOS devices, introduce each of its primary classes, and show how they interact to provide amazing functionality with minimal configuration. Youll learn how to store, fetch, and validate data; provide it efficiently to views; and much more. Isted and Harrington first give you a firm grounding in the technology, and then present real-world examples. They present multiple sample projects, as well as a start-to-finish, chapter-length case study. Coverage includes

Using Core Data in MVC-based iOS app development

Mapping relational data to object models, and building them with Xcode 4s Data Modeler
