This post is a follow up to my previous post which covered the basics of setting up an Android emulator on your machine. Today, let’s take a look at setting up an iOS simulator on OS X. Download and Install Xcode Currently, Apple doesn’t provide a stand-alone simulator app. What you’ll need to do is download (which is free on the Mac App store).
2011 excel for mac slow on 2016 calendar. Xcode is a fairly large package and, depending on your internet connection speed, could take anywhere from 10-30 minutes to download. However, once the installation is complete it’ll take less than 5 minutes to have a full iOS experience loaded onto your computer.
Running the iOS simulator Because the simulator is connected to Xcode it does take a couple steps to load the environment. However, I’ll show you two of my favorite ways to quickly start the simulator. Quick option #1 • Open Xcode (this is required) • Right click the Xcode icon in your dock • Select the “Open Developer Tool > iOS Simulator” option Quick option #2 (preferred) • Right-click the Xcode Application in your Applications folder • Choose “Show Package Contents” • Navigate to /Contents/Developer/Applications/iOS Simulator.app • Drag the iOS Simulator.app into your dock Testing in the iOS Simulator Using Web Inspector However you choose to start the simulator, open up the Safari app and browse to your site. You should be able to interact with it just like a real iPhone. While tapping, scrolling, and virtual pinching can be cool, let’s get some real work done.
The 5 Best Windows Emulator for Mac (Free & Paid) August 7, 2018 by Dan Norris Choosing to use a Mac doesn’t mean you have to leave behind Windows OS and all of the software. By using MAC Emulator for Windows, there is no need to change the O.S. (Operating System) or get another PC dedicated for the MAC O.S. Here are also a bunch of the browsers based emulators too for you. This is the place where a MAC Emulator for Windows comes in handy allowing us to use the MAC only applications for the Windows PC seamlessly.
Simulating Different Devices Because of the varying shapes and sizes of each iOS device, it’s a good idea to test your site in multiple simulated environments. From the iOS simulator, select the Hardware menu and choose Device. From here you can quickly choose between the different versions of iPhones and iPads available. Remember that Retina displays (in most cases) take up more real estate than your screen supports.
Simulating iOS 7.1 Because user adoption rates for new versions of iOS are quite high, you won’t usually need to test your site on versions older than iOS 8. However, if you do, OS X Yosemite supports simulating iOS 7.1 (versions older than 7.1 will need to be installed on a machine running Mavericks or earlier). To make the change • From the simulator, select Hardware > Devices > Manage Devices • Click the + button to create a new simulator • Click the iOS version drop-down and choose “Download more simulators” • Under the Components section you should see the option to download the iOS 7.1 simulator. Once completed iOS 7 devices will now appear under the Hardware > Devices menu. Happy testing!
