Charles Proxy for iOS lets you capture and inspect network requests and responses on your iOS device. You can view metadata, headers and bodies in the app, so you can finally debug your app’s networking issues without a computer.

Charles Proxy for iOS is a new app from the creators of Charles Proxy for desktop.

Turn Charles on when you want to start capturing. Charles captures your network requests and responses in the background while you test your app or website. Return to Charles to inspect the requests and responses.

If you also have Charles on your desktop, you can transfer recorded sessions to your desktop to explore them on the big screen.

Charles creates a local VPN on your device. All of your network traffic passes through Charles on your device, and then out to the internet as usual over either WiFi or Mobile / Cellular data. There is no remote server involved, and your data always remains private to you.

* SSL Proxying to view SSL requests in plain text
* View and share request and responses bodies
* Syntax highlighting for text request and response bodies
* Measure network performance over WiFi or Mobile / Cellular networks
* Block requests to nominated hosts
* DNS spoofing

What’s New

Version 1.3

We've added a DNS Spoofing tool to this version of Charles. Now you can test websites before the DNS is updated, or substitute your production URL for your development one–all from your iOS device.

On the road to an indispensable tool

I downloaded the app not entirely what sure to expect, but I think I might be in love. Using Charles day to day on device has gone from monstrous pain to really easy. So far things are looking stable.

Yes! Been waiting for this for a while!

Makes it so much easier to debug my app.

Worked straight away. Can’t wait for more features to be added. Like editing requests.

Good start, more features needed

Works well but lacking some important features that the desktop app has. Hope the developer adds them in the future as this will be a must have app for all developers!
