Abstract

While the idea of programming multithreaded functions in any environment may seem daunting at first (see Figure 15-1), Apple came up with a new approach that makes multithreaded programming much easier. Grand Central Dispatch comprises language features, runtime libraries, and system enhancements that provide systemic, comprehensive improvements to the support for concurrent code execution on multicore hardware in iOS and macOS.
