    How many actual iOS devices do you use these days for testing your apps before submitting them to the App store?

    Xcode builds 2 different executables (arm7 and arm64).
    For several months out of each year, the most current iOS version is not the most dominant OS version.
    And there are 6 different sizes of display (3.5,4,4.7,5.5,7.9 and 9.7).
    That's a lot of combinations.

    Do you depend on beta test people (where you can't directly debug)?

    Then again, a lot of developers depend on the iOS Simulator (which runs x86-64 code) for some, many or all device variations.

    I try to test on as many devices as possible. Usually my iPhone 6 Plus on a real device, occasionally an iPhone 4 running iOS 7, but usually in the simulator for smaller screen devices and iOS 7.

    QA and E2E testing test on a variety of devices so are much more likely to pick up things.

    I test on iPad 2, 3, 4, Air, Air 2, Mini w/retina, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 & 6 plus.

    All running various versions and flavors of iOS.

    Still have my iPad 1 but don't use it for testing since it can't run iOS 7+.
