Summary : The market share for Apple devices has grown considerably over the past few years, but most reverse engineering topics still focus on Microsoft platforms.

This will include a rundown of the tools available to an apple based researcher, how Objective-C works and what it looks like in a binary, the basics of the Mach-O file format including the undocumented _OBJC section and comparisons of Windows applications and the OS X counterparts.
