The simulator for running iOS apps during development is a big time saver when you do not have a device to hand. What is an even bigger time saver is knowing the keyboard shortcuts to get around it quicker. Here are the top five that you should know.

Rotate the device to the left

Command + Left Arrow

Rotate the device to the right

Command + Right Arrow

Go to the home screen

Command + Shift + H

Increase Volume

Command + Up Arrow

Decrease Volume

Command + Down Arrow

I use these five keyboard shortcuts all the time, especially the device rotation for testing layouts and transitions.
