  1. Physically connect the iPhone or iPad to a Mac.  
  2. From the Mac, open Xcode.  (If Xcode is not already installed on open the Mac App Store app on your Mac, search for Xcode, and click Free to download Xcode.)
  3. From the taskbar click Window > Devices.

  4. From the left pane, under Devices, select the mobile device that is connected to the Mac.
  5. Console output will appear in the bottom pane.
  6. Click the down arrow to save the console output to a text file.
