How to automate Turn On/Off Bluetooth,Scan for BT in iOS

Post by Sai » Wed Aug 02, 2017 6:08 am

Hello Users,

Please execute if this topic is already discussed. I have searched around it but couldn't get best solution.

Here is my scenario i need to automate iOS System Application actions like Turn On/Off Mobile Bluetooth/wifi, Scan for Bluetooth Speakers, Connect/Pair to Bluetooth Speakers.
It is possible to automate out-side of AUT in Android devices and i already worked it successfully in Android.

Can we automate such actions i.e. out-side of AUTs (Non-instrumented) in iOS mobile devices?

Thanks in Advance.

Hi,

I'm afraid, it's not possible to automate system (non-instrumented) apps on iOS. It's iOS security thing.

Thank for your reply.

Please correct me if i am wrong..

you mean that it is not possible to handle/automate iPhone native Applications through wi–fi (For Example : Setting page , Photos and etc)?

I have iOS applications and some of applications are launching over wifi so is it possible.

Thanks in Advance

Hi,

I'm afraid, it's not possible to automate native (system) apps both via wifi and USB. It's an iOS security restriction. Ranorex has no access to these apps.
