Simulating Network Conditions for Comprehensive Mobile App Testing

  • Make sure your application functions in an acceptable fashion even with lousy bandwidth. Tune your bandwidth consumption as much as possible.
  • Bring your latency up to three or four seconds. Make sure any operation that’s initiated by the user is delayed by only a few seconds, rather than minutes.
  • Step down your mobile device network’s bandwidth and connectivity mid-session when your test is running.
  • Setup network conditioner
  • Connect your iPhone real device to your laptop via USB or start the simulator via Xcode
  • Open Windows > Devices and Simulator
