iPhone and iPad Support from Simulink

Deploy an app on your iPhone or iPad using Simulink


Capabilities and Features

Simulink® Support Package for Apple iOS lets you program and run algorithms on iPhone® and iPad® devices. The support package includes a library of Simulink blocks for accessing the device's sensors, capturing and playing audio and video, creating UI widgets and communicating with other devices through a network interface.

You can design signal or image processing algorithms and applications for Apple iOS devices from Simulink. You can monitor and fine-tune the application using the sensors of your iPhone and iPad. Then you can deploy the finished application to your Apple device with the click of a button.

The support package includes:

  • Library of Simulink blocks that program your Apple iOS device I/O, including numerous input sensors such as accelerometer, camera, gyroscope, location, and output to the device display
  • Interactive parameter tuning of outputs and signal monitoring of sensor inputs for applications running on your smartphone or tablet
  • ThingSpeak write block to send sensor data from the device to ThingSpeak in the cloud
  • Model deployment on a mobile app for standalone operation on the device. The app can include touchscreen widgets, such as sliders, buttons, scopes, and data displays, and communicate to other hardware via TCP/IP and UDP.
  • Generation of Xcode compatible projects
