Applies to TestComplete 14.93, last modified on September 21, 2021
The information below concerns legacy mobile tests that work with mobile devices connected to the local computer. For new mobile tests, we recommend using the newer cloud-compatible approach.

To prepare (or instrument) your iOS applications for testing with TestComplete, you need to prepare them in a special way. The topics of this section provide a detailed explanation of how you can do this in TestComplete and Xcode.

Do not submit instrumented applications to the App Store. Instrumented applications use private APIs and will be rejected. Create a separate build configuration for test builds.
