bITs: How to check how your site looks like on iPhone and iPad using your desktop Safari

Need to check how your website looks like on iPhone and iPad but you don’t have either device on hand? Fire up Safari, go to the Menu > click on Develop > User Agent > and you will see a list of browser agents to choose from. Among the list are iOS devices and if your website supports switching to a mobile theme, then you should see your site reload to the theme you assigned for iPad or iPhone.

    NOTE:If the Develop menu does not appear in the menu bar, open Safari preferences, click Advanced, and select “Show Develop menu in menu bar.”
