Announcing Extension-less XCUITest Support in Visual Studio App Center Test for iOS 12

Glenn Wester

In today’s fast-moving mobile world, we know it’s important to deliver a high quality experience on the latest platforms and operating systems. Each year Apple releases a new version of  iOS and the App Center team works tirelessly to support it in our device lab. Keeping this tradition App Center is pleased to announce launch day support for iOS 12 in App Center.

You can now test your iOS apps with XCUITest, Xamarin.UITest and Appium test scripts in our lab. In addition to framework support, we now have over 80 iOS 12 devices available across 13 different models.

The following devices are now available for testing with iOS 12:

  • iPod Touch (6th Gen)
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPad 9.7” (2018)
  • iPad Pro 10.5”
  • iPad Pro 12.9”
  • iPad Mini 4

You can access all of these devices by setting up a new test run. If you’re using CI or a build script to run your tests, be sure to update your device selection to make sure your test suite includes iOS 12.

Test your app on iOS 12 today ensure there are no crashes, performance issues or compatibility errors today!

Running XCUITests no longer requires an extension.

To make it even easier to run your XCUITest scripts in App Center, we’re happy to announce we’ve eliminated the need to modify your scripts. XCUITest tests can now run on App Center Test Cloud without linking app to App Center specific extension. Removing the need for this extension greatly simplifies how end users can go from local testing to easily running on multiple devices in App Center Test Cloud.
