iPhone 7, iOS 10 and Appium. The coverage struggle is real.


The iPhone 7 brings with it the G.A. build of iOS 10. Many enterprises have adopted Appium as their mobile testing framework but Appium doesn't support iOS 10 yet which leaves a critical coverage gap. Until the open source community figures out what Perfecto figured out since day one of the iOS 10 beta companies will be relying on manual testing the iPhone 7... unless they're in regions like India which won't get the iPhone 7 for almost a month after its launch. This means no automation and no manual testing for a month if you're relying on offshore testing! Perfecto's track record for the last three years is shown in the attached image.
