Expose Apple’s Secret Hidden Debug Settings in iOS

iOS Debug Settings

Looking for a cool way to sneak your way into hidden settings in iOS? We’ve released a number of .mobileconfig files which allow users of non-jailbroken iPhones to enable certain debugging options which have previously been unavailable. These debug options are usually only available to Apple engineers and other Apple employees, and aren’t typically available for end users.

SonnyDickson.com readers aren’t typically end users, however – so we’ve decided to offer you access to these settings also (use at your own risk, of course)! The configuration files are available for Maps, Messages and FaceTime settings. When downloaded and installed to the device, they allow logging sessions to be created for each function. The logs can then be dumped, cleared or saved for later use, which could help in certain troubleshooting situations.

These .mobileconfig files can be installed without any issue on jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices. To install, simply tap on the download links given below when viewing this page on your iOS device and hit “Install Now” button to install them.

    I have an iPhone 5 iOs7.0.3 and I keep getting that “Safari cannot install profile – Safari could not install a profile due to an unknown error.” Why is that?

    I keep getting “Cannot Install Profile – Safari could not install a profile due to an unknown error”.

    I have an iPhone 5 iOs 7.0.3. I bought my phone in the middle east without FaceTime and I am really frustrated. I want FaceTime on my phone please without JailBreaking.
