launchd is first process loaded by the kernel. This process is used to manage daemons running on the device. It is commanded using launchctl. The source code used to be available, but with OS X 10.10/iOS 8.0 has been moved into the closed source libxpc, and has undergone significant changes (e.g. single process rather than per-user launchd, and improved XPC functionality).
