New Version of the Parse SDK for iOS 8 For Apple Devs

Parse had released a new version of the Parse SDK for iOS with support for iOS 8 as well as a number of other performance and security improvements.

Parse has updated its SDK to make sure it runs smoothly on iOS 8 and benefits from all the new APIs available. This includes updating how [PFGeoPoint geoPointForCurrentLocationInBackground:] works to be smarter about requesting the appropriate permissions depending on the state of the app and updating push notification integration everywhere to use the new permissions style and support the category key.

There are also performance improvements for Parse Files that let developers store application files in the cloud that would otherwise be too large or cumbersome to fit into a regular database-style Parse Object. This release of the iOS (and OS X) SDK brings greatly improved performance for Parse Files. Uploading is now up to 3 times faster and downloading is up to 35% faster. Parse is also using fewer system resources which leads to better battery usage for file-heavy apps.

There is also improved security for account data. The Parse SDK now uses the System Keychain on both iOS and OS X to store sensitive user information tied to PFUser. All of this happens automatically so developers don’t need to make any changes on their end.
