1. Use Perfect Blend of Automation and Manual Testing
It’s been evident that both automation and manual testing havetheir own strengths and weaknesses. Thus, it is important to use a perfect blend of both,
- Automation Testing and
- Manual Testing
The automation testing will work amazingly to test defects that are not so evident during manual testing such as, testing functional capabilities of an iOS application. On the other hand, manual testing is more effective to test nuances of user experience and navigation of the mobile app from the end user perspective. There are many companies that use automation testing only to save time, but remember the automation testing can’t effectively locate the aesthetic defects and hurdles in better user experience which can be a major contributor of the app failure.
2. Test it for all

This demand to use reliable tools such as,Specta, Appium, etc. as well as experienced QA testing experts. Don’t leave any loose string. Even if you perform emulated testing, you must perform software testing on actual iOS devices. Make sure to test the performance in different environments such as,
- In case of low battery or internet connection
- In case of the oldest/newest model of iPhone or iPad
Also thoroughly test to see the appetite of the app, i.e., how much battery and data it consumes while running in the background and actively; how an app reacts if it is forcefully stopped.
In a nutshell, you need to make sure the iOS app testing is covering all functional, non-functional and aesthetic tests to find and resolve all possible bugs.
