‘Great things are backed by great ideas. And great ideas are backed by great men.’
When we talk about greatness, is there anything that comes to our mind except for iPhones?!
It all started with Steve Job’s simple idea of making people love their phones.
And nowadays, wherever and whoever thinks about quality, Apple is what always takes the lead always. Therefore, if you are on a mission to develop an application for apple devices or iOS, you need to be very careful about the quality. After all, it is for APPLE. It is the reason why iOS app testing and iOs testers are crucial.
Since it is a simple guide to iOS app testing, let’s start from the basics.
What is iOS?
iOS is an operating system that Apple designs for its devices. iOS is one of the best-operating methods in the world. Here are some reasons why.
It has a highly efficient model of memory management.
It gives a longer battery life.
It gives robust software and hardware security and much more.
What is iOS app testing?
iOS app testing is a process by which iOS testers verify iOS applications’ functionality on real apple devices. It is done to make sure that there are no glitches in any of the users’ actions. Such user action includes user experience, installation time, user interface, load time, performance, OS version support, and app store listing.
What are the types of iOS app testing?
iOS automation testing
Following are the major types of iOS automation testing:
In performance iOS app testing, the performance of an application under workload is verified.
In other words, iOS testers test whether, at the time of massive data transfer, how scalable or responsive the application is.
IOS testers verify that an app’s existing functionality doesn’t get disturbed by the code change in this type of testing.
As the name implies, in this type of testing, iOS testers test an application’s compatibility across different versions or devices of apple.
Manual testing by using Emulator
In unit testing, a single component is verified. In this testing, the developer tests, develop and evaluates the source code module’s functioning.
Integration testing verifies the interface between modules. It is done by integrating unit-tested modules.
With the help of UI testing, iOS testers seek to verify your app’s user interface.
Manual testing by using mobile devices
In System testing, iOS applications are made to run on an Apple device. And users use it to test its functionality.
User interface testing
In user interface testing, the user interacts with the application’s user interface. Doing so verifies the properties and functionality of an app touch, soft keys, hard keys, etc.
The data breach is a widespread practice nowadays. So be it your login details or some other payment details, a completely secure app is a must, and that’s why security testing is crucial.
Infield testing, ios application is tested in a slow internet connection. It verifies an app’s usability even in places with connectivity issues or in the area having weak signals.
