    I’ve always wondered why Apple doesn’t provide a built-in device health & diagnostic app for its iOS and iOS derivative devices. Macs have a built-in diagnostics app, so why not iOS? 

    This type of app could reduce support costs dramatically and give Apple Store geniuses and authorized repair center staff a big head start in customer support engagements. In my opinion, diagnosability should be an essential quality attribute for all Apple device architectural designs.

    They can run diagnostics on the phone, they just haven’t exposed the function to users, because it’s a phone, and not something that should be cracked open by folk who don’t know what they’re doing.
