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

Finally it is on iOS


This is an amazing accomplishment for the team and for users. Now it is much easier to inspect traffic for application troubleshooting without having to go through hoops of setting up a proxy though a computer. It was a very smooth process to setup and I think this will allow more people to try the tool out and include it in their dev workflow.

Feels like magic


I am thrilled that Charles is finally available on iOS, and it works great. Setup is painless even for SSL proxying, and it works just like you'd expect it to. You can even export your session and share with desktop Charles! I'm extremely pleased with this purchase.

Fantastic Tool For Developers!


Excited to finally have Charles Proxy for iOS. Fairly easy to use and works well.

Only thing I miss is the “focus” feature that’s on desktop. Once it has that, it’ll be perfect.
