iPhone Simulator Limitation in Development
March 24, 2009 § 1 Comment
iPhone Simulator is limited to many features that you can’t test on desktop. Currently there are no easy way to workaround it.
Features not supported on simulator:
- 3D graphic OpenGL framework
- Camera UIImagePickerController class of the UIKit framework
- Accelerometer 3-axis
- Multi-Touch Interface
- Multiple Simulator Instances
Simulator would show 2 values from CoreLocation, Latitude and Longitude of Apple Headquarter at Cupertino. It wouldn’t show Altitiude and distance. Accurate reading must be obtained in device.
