? memory leak


When I run the simple App in the simulator, one of the displays I blunder into shows CPU, disk, and RAM use. The RAM use seems to slowly climb to the top (16MB)

Conceptually I can’t think what this would be. I’ve read ARC chapters in the Obj-C book and just now in the IOS book and I don’t have any insight.

The quiz seems to work just fine in the simulator.


Build an empty application, and monitor its memory use to see what it climbs to.


About the same. So roughly 16MB is what even a small App must need. About 1000 times the entire RAM of the first computer I ever used.
