1. Vision Pro Simulator

Apple has finally introduced Xcode 15.2, which includes the Vision Pro Simulator. This tiny tutorial will guide you on how to capture and decrypt HTTP/HTTPS Requests/Responses from your Vision Pro app.

To demonstrate, we'd like to use a Movie app, which makes HTTPS Request to api.themoviedb.org to fetch all available movies and show them on the Collection View.

2. Prerequisites

  • Download and install the latest version of Proxyman macOS. (Proxyman Windows/Linux doesn't have this feature because VisionPro Simulator exclusively runs on macOS)
  • Use Xcode 15.2 on your Mac (has Vision Pro Simulator)
  • A working iOS app (Run on iPad Mode) or native Vision Pro app.

3. Start the Vision Pro Simulator

It's time to open Xcode and start your app. Make sure you select Vision Pro Simulator on the Destination Device from Xcode.

If your app is not a native Vision Pro app, you're able to run it with iPad Mode.
