In addition, you can use Developer Tools on each device separately to track touchstart, touchend, touchcancel, or touchmove.

Landscape orientation test:

Test how your website behaves in a landscape mode on the latest iPhones. Landscape orientation helps to find issues with layout and user experience. iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max in Blisk have an option to change the orientation with just one click providing the users with a clear vision of what happens on mobile phones of the end users. Despite the fact that portrait and landscape orientations differ only in that the viewport is rotated 90 degrees, their differences in size are significant. Usually, this difference is overlooked but causes issues for your users on mobile.
