Hi all,

This is my first post - so go easy on me! 😇

TL: DR; My queries boil down to:

  • Does anyone have any advice for supporting/developing for Safari users when you only have access to a Windows 10 or Linux machine?
  • What tools/services do you use?
  • Are they free/reasonably priced?
  • Is the only option to invest in something with MacOS/iOS in order to support them properly?

I'm a long time Windows user with some experience in Linux. I've been doing web development for 6 years and have lots of experience on cross-browser support for IE, Edge, Chrome, Firefox but with not having access to any Apple devices, I've never been able to guarantee functionality or aesthetics for those users.

I'm currently working on a web-based product for a customer that is focused around iOS users and feel that this would be a great opportunity to test and verify things for our users - the problem is I don't have any devices that can run Safari.

I'm reaching out to see if anyone has any useful tools, knowledge or secrets they can share with me to help overcome this issue and thank you in advance to anyone who contributes! 🙌
