TextKit, a much improved (easy-to-use) version of Core Text that is Objective-C based, is arguably the most important and interesting addition. Sprite Kit, Dynamic Text, tighter integration with MapKit, true multitasking for all applications, and much better Bluetooth LE support are other SDK additions, to name a few. The new features don’t stop there. Along with these new SDK features, iOS 7 has a new IDE, Xcode 5, which is rewritten completely using the Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) compiler.

Locking—If you introduce locking to a property to manage multithreaded code, direct ivar access will violate your locks and likely crash your program. ■ Consistency—One could argue that you should just use accessors when you know you need them for one of the preceding reasons, but this makes the code very hard to maintain. It’s better that every direct ivar access be suspicious and explained instead of your having to constantly remember which ivars require accessors and which do not. This makes the code much easier to audit, review, and maintain.

That said, you should not use accessors in a few places: ■ Inside accessors—Obviously, you cannot use an accessor within itself. Generally, you also don’t want to use the getter inside the setter either (this can create infinite loops in some patterns). An accessor should access its own ivar. ■ Dealloc—ARC greatly reduces the need for dealloc, but it still comes up sometimes. It’s best not to call external objects inside dealloc. The object may be in an inconsistent state, and it’s likely confusing to the observer to receive several notifications that properties are changing when what’s really meant is that the entire object is being destroyed.
