Getting Started with iOS

Welcome to using Phidgets with iOS. If you haven't already, check out the user guide for your device. If you are ready to go, the first step to creating an iOS application with Phidgets is learning about the Network Server!

Phidgets cannot be connected directly to iOS devices, therefore, in order to use Phidgets with your iOS device, you must have a host computer that is running the Phidget Network Server.

  • Host computer: the computer that is physically connected to the Phidgets via USB and is running the Phidget Network Server.
  • Client computer: a computer running a Phidgets application that accesses Phidgets connected to the host computer. When developing for iOS, your iOS device acts as the client.
