Sample text

The compiler gives several errors: • ARC Casting Rules: Cast of C pointer type 'CFStringRef' (aka 'const struct __CFString *') to Objective-C pointer type 'NSString *' requires a bridged cast • Semantic Issue: 'autorelease' is unavailable: not available in automatic reference counting mode • ARC Restrictions: ARC forbids explicit message send of 'autorelease' The last two errors are really the same and simply mean that you cannot call [autorelease]. Let’s get rid of that statement first. com Page 53 iOS 5 by Tutorials Chapter 2: Beginning ARC } The remaining error has to do with a cast that apparently should be “bridged”.

The call to CFRelease() is properly balanced by CFBridgingRetain(). If you had used __bridge in this example, then the app would likely crash. ARC might deallocate the string object before the Core Foundation code is done with it. I doubt you’ll need to use this particular bridge type often. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of a single API that is commonly used that requires this. It is unlikely that you have a lot of Core Foundation code in your apps anyway. Most frameworks that you’ll use are Objective-C, with the exception of Core Graphics (which doesn’t have any toll-free bridged types), the Address Book, and the occasional low-level function.

We want ARC to stay the owner of this variable but we also want to temporarily treat it as a CFStringRef. For this type of situation, the __bridge specifier is used. com Page 55 iOS 5 by Tutorials Chapter 2: Beginning ARC tells ARC that no change in ownership is taking place and that it should release the object using the normal rules. m: OSStatus error = AudioServicesCreateSystemSoundID( (__bridge CFURLRef) fileURL, &theSoundID); The exact same situation applies there. The fileURL variable contains an NSURL object and is managed by ARC.
