The fetched results controller reports changes to its section before changes to the fetch result objects.
Changes are reported with the following heuristics:
On add and remove operations, only the added/removed object is reported.
It’s assumed that all objects that come after the affected object are also moved, but these moves are not reported.
A move is reported when the changed attribute on the object is one of the sort descriptors used in the fetch request.
An update of the object is assumed in this case, but no separate update message is sent to the delegate.
An update is reported when an object’s state changes, but the changed attributes aren’t part of the sort keys.
This method may be invoked many times during an update event (for example, if you are importing data on a background thread and adding them to the context in a batch). You should consider carefully whether you want to update the table view on receipt of each message.
