Debugging a website in iOS Safari on Windows 10 can be a tricky task, but with the right tools and techniques, it doesn’t have to be. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at how to debug websites in iOS Safari on Windows 10 using tools like Remote Debugging and Web Inspector.

First of all, you’ll need to install the Scoop package management software for Windows. This will allow you to easily install the necessary tools for debugging your website in iOS Safari.

Once you have installed Scoop, you’ll need to enable the Safari Web Inspector on your iOS device (iPhone or iPad). To do this, connect your device to your PC and trust it from the device settings. Next, run remotedebug_ios_webkit_adapter from your PC. This will allow remote debugging from your Windows PC.

Once you have enabled the Web Inspector on your device and set up remote debugging correctly, you can begin debugging your website. To do this, open up Safari on your Mac and go to Preferences > Advanced > Develop > Show Error Console. This will open up the debug console menu where you can view any errors that occur while loading your website in iOS Safari.

In addition to viewing errors, the Web Inspector also gives you access to various other information about how your website is being rendered in iOS Safari such as network requests and performance metrics. You can use this information to troubleshoot any issues that may arise while developing or testing your website in iOS Safari on Windows 10.

Finally, if you don’t want to use the Web Inspector directly or are having trouble setting it up correctly, there are services such as BrowserStack that make iPhone Safari debugging simple no matter what operating system is being used. With BrowserStack, users can test and debug their website on their desired iPhone – Safari combination directly from their web browser (Firefox, Chrome, etc).

Overall, debugging a website in iOS Safari on Windows 10 can prove difficult but with the right tools and techniques, it doesn’t have to be complicated! Doing it correctly will save time and effort when testing or developing websites for mobile devices running Apple’s iOS platform.

Yes, you can debug iOS on Windows using BrowserStack. BrowserStack is a popular web-based platform that enables users to test and debug their websites and apps on a wide range of browsers, operating systems, and devices, including iPhone Safari. With BrowserStack, Windows users (on Windows XP, 7, 8, 10) can directly launch an iPhone Safari instance from their web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.) and begin debugging right away.

Debugging features include the ability to view the page source, debug JavaScript errors, and inspect element styles. Additionally, you can also take screenshots of your website or app running on different iPhones while debugging. This helps in quickly identifying page layout issues or other issues due to device-specific quirks.
