Can't automate testing on devices using iOS 7

Post by jhorton » Thu Sep 19, 2013 6:53 pm

We have a our app instrumented with the latest ranorex library(version libRxAutomationUni_410.a) It works great on iOS 6 and we are able to do automation testing with it. However when the same app is deployed onto a device running apples new iOS 7 OS, the app crashes instantly on launch. Looking into the crash report it looks like the ranorex library is trying to access some private/undocumented methods that are no longer available in iOS 7. below is the crash report. Any word on when a new automation library might be released that supports iOS 7?

Thank you for the detailed description.
Unfortunately iOS7 is not supported in Ranorex at the moment. We are working on that issue at the moment and will provide a version which supports iOS7 as soon as possible.
