While gadgets personal one another, they could by no means be destroyed via ARC. whether some other item within the software releases possession of those gadgets, those items (and any items that they personal) will live on within their bubble of mutual possession. therefore, a robust reference cycle is a reminiscence leak that ARC wishes your aid to mend. You repair it by way of making one of many references vulnerable. Let’s introduce a powerful reference cycle in RandomItems to determine how this works. First, you'll provide an example of BNRItem the facility to carry one other BNRItem (to signify anything like a backpack or a purse). additionally, an merchandise will comprehend which different merchandise holds it. In BNRItem. h, claim example variables and their accessors. @interface BNRItem : NSObject { NSString *_itemName; NSString *_serialNumber; int _valueInDollars; NSDate *_dateCreated; BNRItem *_containedItem; BNRItem *_container; } + (instancetype)randomItem; - (instancetype)initWithItemName:(NSString *)name valueInDollars:(int)value serialNumber:(NSString *)sNumber; - (instancetype)initWithItemName:(NSString *)name; - (void)setContainedItem:(BNRItem *)item; - (BNRItem *)containedItem; - (void)setContainer:(BNRItem *)item; - (BNRItem *)container; In BNRItem. m, enforce the accessors. - (void)setContainedItem:(BNRItem *)item { _containedItem = merchandise; // while given an merchandise to comprise, the contained // merchandise could be given a pointer to its box merchandise. box = self; } - (BNRItem *)containedItem { go back _containedItem; } - (void)setContainer:(BNRItem *)item { _container = merchandise; } - (BNRItem *)container { go back _container; } In major. m, get rid of the code that populates the array with random goods. Then create new goods, upload them to the array, and cause them to element at one another. int major (int argc, const char * argv[]) { @autoreleasepool { NSMutableArray *items = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init]; for (int i = zero; i < 10; i++) { BNRItem *item = [BNRItem randomItem]; [items addObject:item]; } BNRItem *backpack = [[BNRItem alloc] initWithItemName:@"Backpack"]; [items addObject:backpack]; BNRItem *calculator = [[BNRItem alloc] initWithItemName:@"Calculator"]; [items addObject:calculator]; backpack. containedItem = calculator; backpack = nil; calculator = nil; for (BNRItem *item in goods) NSLog(@"%@", item); NSLog(@"Setting goods to nil... "); goods = nil; } go back zero; } here's what the appliance feels like now: determine three. four RandomItems with powerful reference cycle construct and run the applying. This time, you won't see any messages reporting the destruction of the BNRItem gadgets. it is a robust reference cycle: the backpack and the calculator have powerful references to each other, so there is not any approach to ruin those gadgets. determine three. five indicates the gadgets within the program which are nonetheless taking over reminiscence as soon as goods has been set to nil. determine three. five reminiscence leak! the 2 goods can't be accessed by way of the other a part of the appliance (in this example, main()), but they nonetheless exist, doing not anything important.
