Simulating a bad network connection on iOS devices

By | October 23, 2015

Following yesterday’s quick Android tip, here’s a quick iOS tip.

Want to see how your app performs over a crappy network connection? You could tell the boss you gotta go on a field trip. Or, do this:

Open Settings and tap Developer Options, tap Status under the Network Link Condition item. From there, turn on the conditioner and select the type of network connection you want to simulate.

iOS Settings app Developers tools page of Settings Network Link Conditioner settings

Then again, a field trip to your local coffee shop is probably more fun.
