How can I convert my device token (NSData) into an NSString?

I am implementing push notifications. I'd like to save my APNS Token as a String.

- (void)application:(UIApplication *)application
didRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithDeviceToken:(NSData *)newDeviceToken
{
NSString *tokenString = [NSString stringWithUTF8String:[newDeviceToken bytes]]; //[[NSString alloc]initWithData:newDeviceToken encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
NSLog(@"%@", tokenString);
NSLog(@"%@", newDeviceToken);
}


The first line of code prints null. the second prints the token. How can I get my newDeviceToken as an NSString?

Answer

use this :

NSString * deviceTokenString = [[[[deviceToken description]
                         stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString: @"<" withString: @""] 
                        stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString: @">" withString: @""] 
                       stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString: @" " withString: @""];

NSLog(@"The generated device token string is : %@",deviceTokenString);
