This is the fourth installment of my must have must have list of tools and utilities as a Mac and iOS developer ( 2009 , 2010 , 2011 ). A lot can change in twelve months when you work in the technology space. The biggest change for Apple developers each year are the platform updates. This year saw the transition from iOS 5 to 6 as well as Lion turning into a more powerful Mountain Lion.

The idea for this list was shamelessly ripped off from Windows developer …

…that's my setup. How can it be improved? What device testing tricks are up your sleeve?

1 Apple chose to remove the web sharing option in Mountain Lion. To get this working again you can run a series of commands in terminal , or simply install this preference pane by Tyler Hall . I'm still on Lion currently so I'm not yet affected by this change.

Overview

Marco Arment recommends you read 24 pages (approximately 26,000 words) of detailed analysis about the difference between OS X Lion and OS X Mountain Lion.

…bother setting up Time Machine, or would like to make sure that you can come back to Lion if something is broken, I would suggest using Carbon Copy Cloner to clone your internal hard drive to an external one. (Once the upgrade is done, I would still recommend you set up Time Machine.)

ROAR!!!
