Question : Is it possible to automate APP STORE : iOS Native mobile application automation without Instrumentation process in Ranorex ?


Automation Scenario : Need to write mobile automation script which can connect through iPhone mobile device and can perform keyword search on native iTunes App Store application.

Hi,

No, it's not possible to automate non-instrumented/system-own iOS apps. It's because of iOS architecture and security restrictions, so you are out of luck with any test automation tool, not just Ranorex.
