The easiest way to perform network latency test on an App in iPhone

Simulating network latency or even poor network is very easy in iOS. You don’t need to setup a proxy, router nor a poor network provider. All you have to do is enabling Developer mode using XCode. Then, you can see the *Developer * icon,


Under Developer, you can see the Network Link Conditioner. By default it is Off. Tap on the Network Link Conditioner,


There are a number of profile for you to use. You can use ping time (round-trip) from you mobile phone to your target backend, subtracting ping time from your lab’s backend. Tap on Add a profile…* to create one


Let’s say the ping time is 900ms, you can set either Out Delay, In Delay or both.


Done!
