Hi msh,

In order to start an iOS application with Ranorex it is necessary to use USB connection in combination with the debug mode on your device. Without debug mode it is unfortunately not possible to start an application on your iOS device.

Please find more information about iOS testing in this chapter of our user Guide.

Hi Markus,

thank you for your answer.
It seems, that Ranorex recognises App just,
if it has already started.

Hi msh,

Please ensure that the debug mode is established on your iPad. The debug mode and an USB connection is indispensable in order to start an iOS application with Ranorex.

You can enable the debug session by simply deploying any app to the device in debug scheme from Xcode. As long as the device is not restarted, the debug session will remain active.
