Enable Developer Mode On iPhone And iPad In iOS 12

The options on developer mode seem to be privileged settings and hence only the persons who have the required knowledge can use these features. This is an assumption since the developer mode is not active by default on your iPhone or the iPad device that runs iOS 12. With know-how on operating these settings, you can make use of the advanced functions.

Developers or advanced users will want to use the USB debugging mode while others want to install a third-party ROM or any other Software for that matter. If you are keen on being a developer and are ambitious to explore the menu to play around it, then this is the guide that will let you know how to do this.

  1. Connect the device to a computer
  2. Simultaneously, long press the home button and the power key on your iPhone or the iPad.

  4. Tap and hold the home key for another 10-15 seconds.
