iOS Simulator for Linux Mint OS

I need to have iOS simulator for my Linux Mint OS to check my website responsive in various iOS devices is this possible as I know this feature is available in almost all MAC systems but I cannot afford MAC.


The quickest way to test it would be through a browser extension that automatically resizes the browser to resolutions specific to mobile devices. There's even extensions that will request mobile sites.

The not so quick way, is to use an online simulator like http://transmog.net/ or https://www.browserstack.com/list-of-browsers-and-platforms?product=live#ios

  • Bro thankyou anyway those links helped they gave me exact o/p what it really gets in actual devices :) – dh47 May 19 '15 at 8:35
  • In the case of iPhone, resizing is far from enough. Also, chrome & firefox has a built in "device mode", where you can choose or define screen size. no extension is required. – Berry Tsakala Feb 19 '20 at 10:09

Two solutions:

  • OSX Virtual Machine: Run a VMWare OSX image inside Linux and install XCode. You will have the most accurate iOS emulator where you can choose iPad2, iPad. iPhone5, iPhone6, 6+, rotation of screen, etc.

  • Google Chrome: Load your webpage, right click and click on Inspect Element. On the new window called Developer Tools click on the mobile phone icon and now you get a very good emulator of iOS / Android and Windows Phone devices (Mobile and tablet).

  • Thankyou for your answer but the above answer solved my need anyway :) – dh47 May 19 '15 at 8:36
