iOS Simulators and Charles

10 Aug 2022

The easiest way to setup your simulator is to treat it like a physical iOS device! There are 2 slight differences you need to be aware of. Once you’re familiar with these variances, continue to the iOS device setup instructions HERE.


“Profile” vs “Device Management”

  • The main difference when installing your cert on a real device versus a simulator where you locate the certificate
  • On real devices, your cert is under Settings -> Profile
  • On simulators, your cert is under Settings -> Device Management

Delay with “Device Management” option appearing

  • There can be a delay with the “Device Management” option appearing on the General screen
  • Go back and forth between Settings and General a few times and the option should eventually appear

Having problems?
