Adding an Apple tvOS / iOS / iPadOS Simulator to Suitest¶
Suitest supports Apple tvOS / iOS / iPadOS Simulators running OS version 11.2 or later. After setting up a simulator you will be able to run automated end-to-end tests on Apple apps.
Apple tvOS / iOS / iPadOS Simulators can be controlled only by SuitestDrive running on macOS operating system.
In order to use SuitestDrive, you need to pair it with your Suitest account first.
SuitestDrive relies on Xcode CLI tools to communicate with your device.
You can download the latest Xcode from the Apple developer website and install Xcode (11 or higher) on your Mac.
Once you have Xcode and SuitestDrive set up on your Mac, you can proceed with finding the UDID of your simulator. There are two ways to find the UDID:
Open Xcode > Window > Devices and Simulators or press
[SHIFT] + [CMD] + 2. Switch to the Simulators tab and select the simulator that you need to find the UDID for. The UDID is displayed as "Identifier".
On your Xcode host, open the Terminal and input
xcrun simctl list | grep TVto find the UDID of the simulator(s) that you would like to add.
Do not add any devices with Unavailable description. Also, ignore the first entries, those are simulator types and not specific devices.

- UDID - The unique identifier of this simulator.
