Think about it first, it's hard to remember all what you did in a few seconds. Be ready to brag about your experience, your achievements, what you're proud about. Overall I feel like what is rewarded is you as you are. What you did is a proof of what you are. I don't even hold a bachelor degree, and never worked in a fancy company before.

What were they especially looking in an iOS engineer? Did you code everything in Objective C?

My understanding is that they are looking for reasonably excited people, who can solve medium-hard algorithm problems (not crazy ones, kinda array sorting and stuff), and know well their language and platform (in our case iOS/Objective-C). And yes, all was in Objective-C. At some point I asked if Python would be more adapted, they insisted I do all in Objective-C. I just feel Objective-C is a little heavy (syntax wise) for algorithm problems... Good luck :)
