Media Query breakpoints work great when I minimize and maximize but not when I Inspect my code with Dev Tools?

The media queries on my website are working great when I minimize and maximize the browser, however, whenever I go to inspect it, it will not show the mobile version when I change the viewport to iPhone or Galaxy. Does anyone know why it works fine on desktop but not in Dev Tools?

I would double check your <meta> tag's viewport configuration placed inside the <head> tag of your HTML if your breakpoints are working outside of Dev Tools.

I've included and example that might help solve your problem:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

Happy coding.
