"updated_at": "2016-08-17 12:42:22"

Answer
NSDateFormatter *formatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];
[formatter setDateFormat:@"yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss"]; // or use yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss
NSDate *date = [formatter dateFromString:@"2016-08-16 05:05:22"];
[formatter setDateFormat:@"dd-MMMM-yyyy"];
 NSString * created_at = [formatter stringFromDate: date];
