‘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:

Performance 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. 

Regression testing

IOS testers verify that an app’s existing functionality doesn’t get disturbed by the code change in this type of testing.

Compatibility 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

Unit testing

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

Integration testing verifies the interface between modules. It is done by integrating unit-tested modules.

UI testing

With the help of UI testing, iOS testers seek to verify your app’s user interface.

Manual testing by using mobile devices

System testing

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.

Security testing

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.

Field testing

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.

iOS testers

What to test in an iOS application?

Apple devices are all about a great user experience. Users want to get what they want in the minimum time possible. When it comes to iOS apps, installation time matters a lot. If

an app doesn’t install on time, all the next things take the back seat. Therefore, while the iOS app testers test an iOS app, they must give installation time a strict check.

App name, icon, and splash screen should comply with the defined standards. Also, iOS testers should test the load time of the splash screen.

iOS testers should also verify how much time the app takes to take users to main functions

Then, iOS testers must test how the app behaves when they launch it without an internet connection. Also, do check how the app acts at relaunch.

Moreover, as iOS testers, you must test how many times the notification alerts are prompted to the user. It should appear somewhat once only.

Take a strict note if the application is not listed in supported OS versions device’s app store.

Furthermore, battery consumption by an app is also another thing that iOS testers should test.

Once you have installed the app, you need to test whether it is present on the iPhone app listing.

Additionally, iOS testers should verify the performance of the app and its load time.

The buttons performing standard actions must be doing what they intend to do.
