PFUser challenge not working? What input do you expect???

Ok so the input i provide is good, it is actually the exact same input than the one in my app (did a copy paste to check the syntaxt), so why don't i valide the challenge, i just don't get it...

SignupViewController.m
#import "SignupViewController.h"
#import <Parse/Parse.h>

@implementation SignupViewController

- (IBAction)signup:(id)sender {
    self.username = self.usernameField.text;
    self.password = self.passwordField.text;
    PFUser *newUser = [PFUser user];
    newUser.username = username;
    newUser.password = password;
}

@end

Hi, you are assigning the text from your textfield to a property, so you should use the property to assign the value to the newUser object:

#import "SignupViewController.h"
#import <Parse/Parse.h>

@implementation SignupViewController

- (IBAction)signup:(id)sender {
    self.username = self.usernameField.text;
    self.password = self.passwordField.text;
    PFUser *newUser = [PFUser user];
    newUser.username = self.username;
    newUser.password = self.password;
}

@end

OR even shorter you could do something like:

#import "SignupViewController.h"
#import <Parse/Parse.h>

@implementation SignupViewController

- (IBAction)signup:(id)sender {
    PFUser *newUser = [PFUser user];
    newUser.username = self.usernameField.text;
    newUser.password = self.passwordField.text;
}

@end
