I would like to start building an iOS app.
Thing is, I’m an Android user and I was wondering what would be the cheapest iOS device that I could get away with in order to test my app.
I guess the right answer would be: all the devices that your users may have.
And that is fine, however, it would not be the cheapest option, so I was wondering what is, in your experience, the one device that you would buy to test your app and have some sort of validation that the app would look, on average, alright and will be functional.
For instance, could I buy an iPod to test my app and have good chances that it will run fine on an iPhone 5 or 6?
Or would I be better off buying an iPhone 5?
Or will there still be differences when trying the app on an iPhone 5 vs trying it on an iPhone 6?
EDIT: thank you all guys for providing your points of view on this, it’s been very instructive reading all your opinions!!!
Now I have a clear picture of where to start.
