Running Selenium scripts on iPhone Safari
Could you please point me in the right direction to set up Selenium scenarios suite to run remotely on iPhone in Safari? I would like to know if iPhone 13 is supported and if so is there a limit on the number of iPhones to run scenarios in parallel.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Absolutely! Under the 'Getting Started' section from the 'Automation' tab we have a capability configurator that allows you to select your desired platform/device. This will build out the required caps for the selected device. This configurator is actually a fully functioning script you can copy/paste into your IDE to get up to speed quickly with Selenium in CBT. You can access this fully by clicking on 'View Full Script' just above and to the right of the displayed capabilities.
Link to our Getting Started section;
It looks like the iPhone 13 is not currently supported yet. You may reach out to the CBT Support Staff to inquire about any information in regards to a release timeframe.
As for parallel, there is no limit to the 'types' of devices you can run at once. The only limitation is how many parallel tests you can run at maximum, which is a metric of the subscription in CBT.
I hope this helps!

Thank you, Nick, appreciate your help
Hoping I can reach out for help again. I've been experimenting with the c# selenium getting started script for iPhone 11/13.
When the code creates a driver object successfully, the driver.Navigate().GoToUrl("https://www.publix.com/"); call exits before the site is displayed and evaluating driver.Title results in FORWARDING_ERROR: connect ECONNREFUSED 10.191.85.10:12993. The CBT site ui shows the below.
Other times, creation of Webdriver fails object with this: System.InvalidOperationException
Message=A new session could not be created. Stacktrace: FORWARDING_ERROR: connect ECONNREFUSED 10.191.85.12:13023 (SessionNotCreated)

Please let me know if you can think of anything I can try
Switching to iphone12 resolved this issue; still having an issue with parallelization
Hi Nick, when running multiple tests iphone safari is there a way to control whether CBT runs tests on multiple devices or runs several safari session on a single iphone?
Glad to hear you resolved the first issue. We'll take a look into that.
As for parallel testing, this is all setup within your local scripts in regards to the devices used.
Below is an overview of parallel testing along with some samples to help you out.
