Now that is a really good suggestion (plus I've always meant to give 
Browserstack a try).

Looks very good from what I can see. Tho I see all 4 of my demos are 
indeed busted. :-/

Anyone know if the iOS simulator comes with a console? Want to check if 
there's any JS errors.

Even so, good suggestion and will prob get a subscription to 
Browserstack already. (Impressed!).

It is reliably accurate. You can show console.log (same as on device) OR use Safari's web inspector, which is more powerful for debugging.
