How to Activate the Debug Console in Safari for the iPhone

The iPhone's Safari browser has a built-in Debug Console which can be used by developers to track down Web page defects. Whenever CSS, HTML, and JavaScript errors are detected, details of each are displayed in the debugger.

This Debug Console is disabled by default, as most everyday iPhone users have no use for it. However, it can be activated in just a few short steps. This tutorial shows you how it's done.

First select the Settings icon, normally located towards the top of your iPhone Home Screen.
