Sending ‘const NSString *’ to parameter of type ‘NSString *’ discards qualifiers [Solved]

For example, write const NSString* firstString = @"xxx";
NSString* secondString = @"yyyy";
[secondString isEqualToString:firstString];
There is a warning about sending 'const NSString *' to parameter of type 'NSString *' discards qualifiers.
Workaround.
Change const NSString* firstString = @"xxx";
to NSString* const firstString = @"xxx";
