Is it a must to run ios app from xcode to real device to get a webview context?

I installed the release ipa package on my iPhone device, and want to test the webview, but I can’t get the context. After some study, I find I can’t inspect my app even from my mac safari, it showed “no inspectable applications”. Is it possible to get the webview context from a real device if the ipa is built for release?
Thanks very much for any reply.

Just ask dev to enable webView debug for test builds

Hi @Aleksei, I didn’t see any switch for webView for iOS, and our dev neither know that. can you share some clue for that?

BTW did you enable on phone ->


  • Web Inspector
  • Remote Automation

Hi @Aleksei,
Yes I enabled that.
