The BonjourBrowser hierarchically displays Bonjour domains and services as table views in a navigation controller. The contents of the table views are discovered and updated dynamically using NSNetServiceBrowser objects. Tapping an item in the services table causes the corresponding NSNetService object to be resolved asynchronously. When that resolution completes, a delegate method is called which constructs a URL and opens it in Safari.
BracketStripes: Using the Bracketed Capture API AVFoundation BracketStripes This sample illustrates the use of still image bracketing APIs available in AVFoundation. Two types of brackets are demonstrated: 1. Auto-exposure brackets with exposure target bias, and 2. Manual exposure with control over ISO and exposure duration. As each of the bracketed frames are captured in real-time, they are "striped" into a destination image buffer and later shown in a modal image viewer so each of the captured frames can be compared side-by-side.

MetalBasic3D Graphics & Animation (3D Drawing) Metal This Metal example has been ported from the Xcode OpenGL ES template and includes a reusable view class and a geometric math library built on top of the simd.h library. The math library has been created for performing geometric graphics operations within Metal's left hand coordinate system and is used in this sample to set up a basic perspective, look at and model view projection matrix for objects rendered in the scene. Each cube is renderered individually using a basic 3D lighting shader with diffuse and ambient components. Additional effects have been added to one of the spinning cubes from the template to demonstrate altering a single object's uniform values per frame while keeping the other constant, all the while sharing the same buffer in memory. The cube geometry is defined with interlaced vertex and normal data and demonstrates how stride can be read within a shader.
MetalDeferredLighting Graphics & Animation (3D Drawing) Metal MetalDeferredLighting is designed as an example of rendering of a g-buffer and light accumulation in a single render encoder in one pass using programmable blending. In this sample, we render in 2 passes. As such it is also an example of a multipass renderer in Metal. A "pass" in this case is defined as all draws to a texture before swapping it out for a new texture. The first pass renders a shadow map based on the calculated position of a sun. The second pass performs a deferred lighting algorithm by writing to and reading from a framebuffer containing 4 color attachments. Three of the attachments are seeded with the g-buffer values (albedo, linear depth, normal). Next, light primitives are rendered to accumulate light into the light accumulation attachment, reading the g-buffer values directly from the other attachments. A full screen quad combines the light accumulation buffer with the albedo texture, samples the shadow map as a texture, and applies the light contribution from the sun.
