Inspect is one of the few tools, that enables you to debug Google Chrome on iOS by giving you an all-in-one developer tool for macOS, Windows, and Linux.

Before Chrome 115, debugging webpages required building Chrome for iOS from source, as the release version of apps using WKWebView did not support remote Web Inspector debugging.

In iOS 16.4, Apple made it possible for apps using WKWebView to allow Web Inspector debugging, so in Chrome 115, Google introduced a new setting to enable Web Inspector, which makes it possible for Inspect to debug Chrome on iOS, as we can debug any Webkit target on iOS.


  1. iOS device with iOS 16.4+ or later
