This method involves syncing the device with iTunes. After syncing, crash reports will be copied to a specific location on your hard drive. This method is also documented at: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#qa/qa1747/_index.html.
- Sync the device with iTunes on your desktop
- After syncing, look for crash logs in the correct directory. See below for a list of directories for each operating system:
Mac OS X:
C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Application Data\Apple Computer\Logs\CrashReporter\MobileDevice\<DEVICE_NAME>
Windows Vista or later:
(NOTE FOR MAC USERS: ~/Library is hidden by default on Mac OS X. To easily access this folder open the Finder application then hold the “option” key while clicking on the “Go” menu. A menu item for “Library” will appear. Select that, then continue navigating to Logs, CrashReporter, etc.)
- In this directory, look for files starting with “ITmanager.net“
