ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mobile Labs, LLC, a leading provider of secure, enterprise-grade, next-generation mobile testing solutions today announced that comprehensive support for iPhone®, iPod touch®, and iPad® devices running Apple’s iOS 8 will be available on September 17, 2014, the same day it is made publicly available by Apple. Support includes the new iPhone models, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Devices running iOS8 are available in Mobile Labs’ deviceConnect™, a private mobile device cloud that supports manual and automated mobile app testing, manual and automated website testing, performance testing, service objective monitoring, manual device testing, and mobile DevOps from its secure location behind the corporate firewall. deviceConnect’s iOS 8 support includes the complete set of device access management and testing capabilities available for Android and prior iOS versions: device control, object-based automation, and device management. In addition, support includes dynamic instrumentation that allows unmodified apps, including iOS8 apps, to be tested without the need to create a special app build or to make source code changes.
“We predict that our customers and the users they support will move to iOS 8 much more quickly than they did for iOS 7,” said Mobile Labs President and CEO Don Addington, “increasing the pressure to thoroughly test already-deployed apps. Using existing iOS test scripts and test cases for regression testing is the best way to speed current apps onto the new operating system, dramatically increasing the return-on-investment for existing tests. As the velocity of user adoption of iOS 8 and future releases continues to increase, the efficiency and security of deviceConnect will continue to make critical impacts on both time-to-market and quality.”
The newly-announced iPhones bring even more form-factors to the Apple device family, increasing the value of object-based, single-script automated regression testing made possible by Mobile Labs Trust™, deviceConnect’s automation engine. deviceConnect’s browser-based and Windows-based viewers enable testing of new API functionality and multi-device features like Handoff that transfer activities from one device to another. Such multi-device testing can check out new cloud-storage functions for things like health data and home automation.
“Timely testing of apps on iOS 8 will be a critical factor for the continued acceptance of apps in the workplace and the marketplace,” said Addington. “The efficiencies of deviceConnect’s automated regression testing, single-script automation across form factors, and DevOps automation make Mobile Labs the right partner for the mobile-everything enterprise capitalizing on the opportunities of mobility.”
