Frequently Asked Questions

What is an iPhone Emulator and what is an iPhone simulator?

An iPhone simulator is actually an iOS simulator that mimics an iPhone device. These simulators allow developers and QA testers to do a quick check of their apps and websites on iPhones. The simulators have limited capabilities when running on Windows.

Interestingly, there are no iPhone emulators since Apple devices use custom binaries and proprietary chipsets, which cannot be mimicked. Thus iPhone emulator is just a misnomer.

Why use Real Device Cloud instead of an iPhone simulator?

Real device cloud supports testing of natural gestures, battery consumption, simulate GPS and IP geolocation. QA testers can share bugs via JIRA, Trello, Slack and Developers can replicate these bugs with ease and fix them. You can also integrate using CI/CD plugins with tools like Jenkins, CircleCI etc. BrowserStack provides instant access to real iPhone devices like iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 7 and others. Thus, companies need not compromise by testing on iPhone emulator or simulators and they don’t need to setup expensive real device labs. So, Get Started for Free with iPhone Real Device Cloud.

What are the disadvantages of using an iPhone simulator?

  • Running iPhone emulator on Windows or Mac, are normally slow

  • Accuracy of such emulators can be below par/ sub-standard, based on the creator

  • Limitation towards number of applications that can be supported

Testing on iPhone simulators or emulators can mean compromising on user experience. Simulators cannot mimic the exact performance on a real iPhone device. In fact, Apple recommends testing apps and websites on real devices since simulators cannot mimic all functionalities of the real device. For example, the official Apple iOS simulator does not have the Schoolwork app, which is important to test how Classkit will behave in a real world scenario.

Why do users opt for iPhone simulators (also referred to as iPhone emulator)?

  • Given iPhone’s high market share and their superior spending capacity, testing on iPhones is a must

  • Setting up and running a real iPhones device lab is expensive and hence companies prefer simulators

  • Since tests on iPhone simulators are only used for quick sanity tests, it works well

Why is testing your website and apps on iPhones critical?

iPhones have a 23% global market share. iPhone users are known to spend nearly double of what users of other phones spend. Therefore, ensuring iPhone users get the best user experience is critical.

iPhone runs on Apple’s iOS and users predominantly browse using Safari. iOS behaves differently from Android and Safari supports CSS in a different form versus Chrome, IE. Therefore, testing on iPhones for responsive design and cross browser compatibility is important. Test Now on Real iPhone.
