Set time on BrowserStack real iOS devices

Important: Live does not support setting time and changing timezone simultaneously on BrowserStack real iOS devices.
Note: On BrowserStack real Android devices, you can set the time by launching your Live test session and following the procedure mentioned in Google documentation.
  1. Log in to the Live dashboard.
  2. Select the device-browser combination to start your test session.
  3. On the Live toolbar, click Settings.
  4. Under iOS Settings on the Settings prompt, click General.
  5. Select from the dropdowns to set the time in the HH:MM XM format, and click Update Time.
    You see a message on the dashboard that the device time is updated.
Note: The Set Time Automatically setting is disabled by default. If you enable this setting, you cannot set the time manually on the device.
