iOS and macOS Performance Tuning (Addison-Wesley)
Monday, 15 May 2017

Focusing on performance optimization for macOS and iOS, Marcel Weiher drills down to the code level to help you systematically optimize CPU, memory, I/O, graphics, and program responsiveness in any Objective-C, Cocoa, or CocoaTouch program. Drawing on 25 years of experience optimizing Apple device software, he identifies concrete performance problems that can be discovered empirically via measurement.
