The kernel in iOS is based on a variant of the same basic Mach kernel that is found in Mac OS X. Core OS Layer Core Os Layer Manage the virtual memory system, threads, the file system, the network, and interprocess communication with the frameworks in the Core OS layer. This layer encompasses the kernel environment, drivers, and basic interfaces of iOS. PowerPoint Presentation: Core Services Layer Core Services layers contain the fundamental interfaces for iOS, including those used for accessing files, low-level data types, Bonjour services, network sockets, and so on. These interfaces are mostly C-based . Media Layer Media Layer allows you to create the best multimedia experience available on a mobile device with the frameworks in the Media layer. More advanced technologies that use interfaces based on a mixture of C and Objective-C is used in Media Layer. Cocoa Touch Layer Implementation of a graphical, event-driven application in iOS with the frameworks is performed in the Cocoa Touch Layer. In the Cocoa Touch layer, most of the technologies use Objective-C. The frameworks at these layers provide the fundamental infrastructure used by your application.
