Facebook iOS engineer Nikita Lutsenko offered more details in a post on the Parse blog:

Earlier this year, we introduced the Bolts framework, a set of low-level libraries to make developing mobile apps easier and faster. One of the core components of Bolts is Tasks. Tasks brings the programming model of JavaScript Promises to iOS and Android.

Today, we are proud to open an entirely new set of public APIs (application-programming interfaces) with the new versions of our iOS, OS X and Android SDKs. Inside this release, you will find that every method that was once intended to be asynchronous now has a Tasks-based counterpart. Organizing complex asynchronous code is now much more manageable in addition to being easier and faster to implement.
