NSNumberFormatter fractional multiplier and -objCType = i

Number:rdar://16775214 Date Originated:4/30/2014
Status:Open Resolved:
Product:iOS SDK Product Version:7.1
Classification:Other Bug Reproducible:Always
NSNumberFormatter's output is influenced by the Objective-C type of the number passed as input. This behavior was unexpected, and I want to clarify whether this is intentional or a bug.

NSNumber *numberInCents = @9999;

NSNumberFormatter *numberFormatter = [[NSNumberFormatter alloc] init];

[numberFormatter setNumberStyle:NSNumberFormatterCurrencyStyle];
[numberFormatter setMultiplier:@0.01];

NSString *formattedString = [numberFormatter stringFromNumber:numberInCents];

NSLog(@"formattedString: %@", formattedString);

// formattedString is "$99.00" since the -objCType of numberInCents is i.
// changing numberInCents to @9999.0 results in formattedString equaling "$99.99"

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a sample Xcode project
2. Run the sample code from the description
3. Observe the output in the Xcode console

Expected Results:
The expected result is $99.99

Actual Results:
The actual result is "$99.00" since the Objective-C type of numberInCents is i.
