    Very useful article. Personally though I dislike littering my code with if else statements to deal with IOS version differences. I have created a styling Interface and then created an IOS6 and an IOS7 concrete implementation and I use IoC to resolve to the correct version. That way the only if / else is neatly tucked out of the way in just one place. The code then looks cleaner and easier to follow.

    Thanks Gavin!

    That is a really great idea actually. Any code you could share or a blog post written on it?
