Video recording for mobile app testing is a neat feature that provides video as an output from the remote test sessions. When you start a test run on any number of devices and something goes wrong with any of those device runs, it’s a great feature to check what actually happened on that run – by looking at the video.
The recent launch of iOS 10 has sparked some serious discussion in test automation ecosystem and among framework developers. Several test automation frameworks have had issues with the latest iOS version and this have forced developers and testers to tweak their testing environments, scripts and tool setups.
