In Objective-C, there are three ways to create a timer. The following two class methods automatically register the new timer with the current NSRunLoop object in the default mode (NSDefaultRunLoopMode).

scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval:invocation:repeats: scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval:target:selector:userInfo:repeats:

The following two class methods create timers that you may register at a later time by sending the message addTimer:forMode: to an NSRunLoop object.

timerWithTimeInterval:invocation:repeats: timerWithTimeInterval:target:selector:userInfo:repeats:

Try using scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval:target:selector:userInfo:repeats:. –zootbobbalu
