I followed a guide where the author connected
Windows PC and
iPhone to his home
WiFi network. He installed
mitmproxy and ran
mitmweb.exe on PC. On iPhone he went to wifi settings and set a manual proxy setting to the local IP of the PC and he set for port the default port where mitmproxy listens at, which is
I followed it and it works for browser apps (after installing certificate from mitm.it). It even worked for an app like “Maps” but it doesn’t work for many others. I was unable to use
App Store, it said “unable to connect”.
My questions are: did these apps detect a local proxy configuration and refused to connect? Why are they set up like? How can I bypass it?
