How to set countdownTimer for each day in ios?

I have to check current time of device and set countdownTimer for the remaining time in a day.And reset label time at 12 am everyday (timer get restart as 23:59).

- (void)updateCountdown {
NSDate *tomorrow = [[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults] valueForKey:@"Date"];
NSTimeInterval secondsPerDay = 24 * 60 * 60;
NSDate *date = [tomorrow dateByAddingTimeInterval:secondsPerDay];
NSDate *startingDate = [NSDate date];
NSDate *endingDate = date;

NSCalendar *calendar = [NSCalendar currentCalendar];
NSUInteger unitFlags = NSYearCalendarUnit|NSMonthCalendarUnit|NSDayCalendarUnit|NSHourCalendarUnit|NSMinuteCalendarUnit|NSSecondCalendarUnit;
NSDateComponents *dateComponents = [calendar components:unitFlags fromDate:startingDate toDate:endingDate options:0];

NSInteger hours = [dateComponents hour];
NSInteger minutes = [dateComponents minute];
NSInteger seconds = [dateComponents second];
NSString *countdownText = [NSString stringWithFormat:@" %ld Hours %ld Minutes %ld Seconds", (long)hours, (long)minutes, (long)seconds];
lblRemainigText.text = countdownText;
[self performSelector:@selector(updateCountdown) withObject:nil afterDelay:1];


Thanks in Advance.

Why not just use a timer and check the time if it's 00:00? I hope it can help, im new at Obj-C

//at viewdidload
NSTimer *timer = [NSTimer scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval:1.0f

    NSCalendar* calendar = [NSCalendar currentCalendar];
    NSDateComponents* components = [calendar components:NSCalendarUnitHour|NSCalendarUnitMinute|NSCalendarUnitSecond fromDate:[NSDate date]]; // Get necessary date components

    NSInteger dateinSec = [components hour]*60 + [components minute];
    NSInteger dayEnd = 24*60-1;
    if (dateinSec == dayEnd) {
        [self resetSomething];//update when it reach 23:59:59

    //update ur label with this
    NSLog(@"%ld h, %ld m, %ld s till restart", 24-[components hour], 60 - [components minute], 60 - [components second]);
