API Locations for iPhone

I am unable to use API to execute any iPhone device testing? Are there any locations that work? I tried all Dulles_iPhone locations.

Thanks

I tried Dulles_iPhone8 as well. Still, no luck. They all work when I try online. But, they fail when executed using the API.

Thanks

Theoretically you should be able to find the API-supported locations using https://www.webpagetest.org/getLocations.php?k=A&f=html, but the information on this is confusing and those are not all supported.

On this post (https://www.webpagetest.org/forums/showthread.php?tid=15722&pid=31640#pid31640) pmeenan says “https://www.webpagetest.org/getLocations.php?k=A&f=html is a filtered version of the list that shows the locations that are available to be used with the API keys.” but in fact many of those fail (at least for me), such as “Dulles_iPhone8” and others.

The documentation is very unclear. I would gladly volunteer some time to update the API documentation if useful. I appreciate the free service and am not complaining but it would be nice to more easily find what we can and can’t do with it.

What do you mean by the locations listed fail? Dulles_iPhone8 isn’t in the list at https://www.webpagetest.org/getLocations.php?k=A&f=html

These are the locations currently listed there and they should all work:

Dulles_MotoG4
Dulles_MotoG
Dulles
Dulles_Edge
Dulles_IE11
Dulles_Thinkpad
ec2-us-east-1
ec2-us-west-1
ec2-sa-east-1
ec2-eu-west-1
London_EC2
ec2-eu-west-3
ec2-eu-central-1
ap-south-1
ec2-ap-southeast-1
ec2-ap-northeast-2

@pmeenan, yes, sorry, false news. :confused: I must have had both pages open, the full list and the API list.

Right now I only see location ex: Dulles and not any device. Are there any location where I can execute API test on mobile devices?
It will be good to get list of location:browser.connectivity, it the format we can copy and pate

No. Physical mobile devices are not available through the API currently. You can do mobile testing through the API using chrome with mobile emulation (mobile=1 API param).
