Announcing Support For iOS 8

ios8

Today we added support for iOS 8 to our platform offering. The new simulators run on OSX 10.9 and will support both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus screen sizes. Heralded as the biggest release to-date, iOS 8 delivers several new features including Apple's HealthKit and iCloud integrations. You can access the new simulators for web testing using the example code below.

# for Java and Appium
DesiredCapabilities caps = DesiredCapabilities.iphone();
caps.setCapability("browserName", "Safari")
caps.setCapability("platformVersion", "8.0");
caps.setCapability("appium-version", "");
caps.setCapability("platformName", "iOS");
caps.setCapability("deviceName", "iPhone Simulator"); # for Node and Appium caps = {browserName: 'Safari'}; caps['platformVersion'] = '8.0'; caps['appium-version'] = ''; caps['platformName'] = 'iOS'; caps['deviceName'] = 'iPhone Simulator';
# for Python and Appium
caps = {'browserName': "Safari"}
caps['platformVersion'] = "8.0"
caps['appium-version'] = "1.3.0-beta1"
caps['platformName'] = "iOS"
caps['deviceName'] = "iPhone Simulator"
