iOS/Mac Network Link Conditioner

Xcode Lets You Test Your Network-Based Apps

Who knew? Apparently just about everybody – except me! I recently discovered the Network Link Conditioner Apple provides for developers. The latest version I could find was Hardware IO Tools for Xcode 4.4 – Late July 2012 for the Mac, but I was pleasantly surprised it was already on my iPhone under Settings.

Simply turn it on, run your app, fix it. Note: this will affect all network communication on your device while it’s enabled so don’t forget to turn it off when you’re done testing your app.
