Wirelessly Debug on your iDevice in iOS 11

Like me, I hope all of you are excited about the NEW super cool feature in Xcode9, now you can debug apps on your iPhone/iPad without actually connecting it to Mac with lightening cable.

Here are the simple steps you need to follow to pair your device:

  1. In the Xcode menu choose Window > Devices & Simulators, Click Devices.
  2. Connect your device to mac using cable and select your device.
  3. Click on the box next to “Connect via network”.
Xcode Devices & Simulators Window.

4. Once Xcode Pairs your device you will see network icon next your device.

Devices Window once your device is paired

P.S : Your device & Mac needs to be on the Same Network for pairing to happen.

Once you see Network icon next to your device, you can remove your device from lightening cable & you are all set to enjoy the convenience of wireless debugging :)
