Unity Remote 5
By Unity Technologies ApS
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Unity Remote 5, allows you to use an iOS device to view and test your game live, right inside the Unity Editor without having to build your project. Unity Remote 5 makes your iOS device act as remote control. It streams touch, MFi gamepad, Siri remote (on Apple TV) accelerometer, gyroscope, webcam and screen orientation events back to Unity Editor. This is useful for rapid development when you don't want to compile and deploy your project to iOS device for each change and prefer to use the Unity Editor Game window instead. Unity Remote is compatible with any Unity version newer than 5.0, but some features require Unity 5.4 or above.

Fails despite every effort, with no helpful messages
While I love Unity3D, this is not a well engineered tool at all. If the stars align and it works for you, consider yourself lucky. For over a year, this tool has refused to work, despite following all troubleshooting steps given by Unity's support page. iTunes and Windows have no problems at all in interacting with my iPad. Why the tool gives ZERO info/error messages is beyond me.
I tried this on Unity 5.1.1, 5.4.0, and 5.5.0, none of them seem to work. Also, I tried this on iPhone & iPad with no success. The unity editor successfully lets you select the device but the application does not connect once hitting play.
Definitely beats building every time you need to test
