Getting a crash report

To get a crash report you will need to plug in the device and sync with iTunes. The crash logs can be found in the following locations, depending on the platform:

  • Mac OS X: ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<DEVICE_NAME>
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Application Data\Apple Computer\Logs\CrashReporter\MobileDevice\<DEVICE_NAME>
  • Windows Vista or 7: C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\Logs\CrashReporter\MobileDevice\<DEVICE_NAME>

Where <USERNAME> is the user’s login name for the computer and <DEVICE_NAME> is the name of the iOS device (i.e. “John’s iPhone”)

Look for files that start with the application name and have the extension “crash”.
