How to test your site for iPhone

on summer vacation blog for iphonemade I had to test it, but I didn't have an iPhone or iPod touch.

I remember using an emulator in 2000 to test card and deck swap sites, so I looked it up.

I found two ways.


iphoney It's free software. There is only for Mac.

I tested this software.




Firefox+ user agent switcher extension

User Agent Switcher ExtensionHow to change the user agent. It won't replace Safari's engine, but you can test making a website respond when the iPhone or iPod touch browser arrives. Firefox is available for Mac or Windows.

Install this extension and register information for iPhone.

Super simple program to check user agent information of browserI made the following and checked the user agent information when connecting to the iPod.

Your Browser(User Agent) is

Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/1A538a Safari/419.3

In Firefox, click Tools-user agent switcher-options-options and enter the following information.

  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en)
  • App Name: AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko)
  • App Version: Version/3.0
  • Platform: Mobile/1A542a Safari/419.3

In this way, user agent is registered, and when testing, select and connect to this agent.


After testing like this, when I used it with an actual iPod touch, there were cases where clicking with the mouse worked well but not with my finger. I still don't know why.
