iOS Simulator caches html requests

Posted on: January 14, 2013

if you find your app fetches the same html page every time it is running, despite the fact that you have edited the html with lots of ‘hello’s, it turns out the simulator is cacheing its images and related files and not fetching fresh.

go to dropdown menu in iOS Simulator (the app menu), choose ‘reset content and settings’

re-run the app and you will see the html page returns as the version you want

unfortunately you have to reset every time before you try out a new change — it is atrocious that the user experience of the developer for a company known for great UI/UX is THIS BAD. you can obviously tell that they are products from two different groups, in terms of UX.
