Geolocation in iOS takes you deep inside Apple’s Core Location framework, Map Kit, and other iOS tools, using illustrative examples and sample Objective-C code.

Learn how to build location-aware apps for both iPhones and iPads, using code that detects hardware features and then adjusts your app’s behavior.
