AWS Device Farm Getting iOS App Testing Support
Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS) today announced it was adding support to test iOS apps.
Currently, the device farm, launched earlier this month, lets mobile app developers test devices running Google's Android OS and Amazon's own Fire OS.
Starting Aug. 4, mobile devs will also be able to test their wares on iOS apps, an OS generally regarded as the top money-maker for mobile devs.
"With the new iOS support, you will be able to test your cross-platform titles and get reports (including high-level test results, problem patterns, logs, screenshots and performances data) that are consistent, regardless of the platform and test framework that you use," AWS exec Jeff Barr said in a blog post today. "If you use a cross-platform test framework such as Appium or Calabash, you can use the same code for Android, Fire OS and iOS tests."
The device farm will support test automation frameworks including: Appium (Java JUnit and Java TestNG); Calabash; UI Automation; and XCTest.
Barr pointed to Device Farm documentation to help devs get started.
