As iOS 5 is imminent, is it safe to assume that the focus of the book is on iOS 4? The book description doesn't specify.

Yes, it was written based on iOS 4. Since Apple imposes an NDA, we wouldn't even be allowed to write about iOS 5 specific stuff.

Just about everything that's covered in the book is the same in iOS 5, though. The book focuses on the language Objective-C, and that language will not change from iOS 4 to 5, except for a few additions for ARC (automated reference counting).

It won't be outdated and obsolete once iOS 5 is released.

And when you are done with the book you can head over to https://developer.apple.com/videos/wwdc/2011/ for iOS5 new features.

Good to know. As I had pointed out in another topic, staying ahead of the curve while writing a book is quite the challenge!
