Deploy App: iPhone/Apple Watch UDID difference

Post by zivshapirawork » Thu Sep 14, 2017 7:35 am

Issue while deploying an instrumented .ipa to iPhone, which includes a deployment to a Apple Watch

Regular deployment of the ipa (not via Ranorex) deploys successfully to the device and Apple Watch wearable.

iPhone has its own UDID. Apple Watch also has its own standalone UDID.

Ranorex deploys the ipa to iPhone using the iPhone's UDID in the .mobileprovision file (successfully). The iPhone attempts to deploy the Apple Watch App (which is included in the IPA) and fails, since the whole deployment in Ranorex doesn't acknowledge the Apple Watch UDID. Both UDID's are included in the mobileprovision file.

can you please advise : how to handle the UDID difference using the provisioning and instrumentation process? (making Ranorex aware of the wearable UDID)

Ranorex 7.0.1

Hi all,

Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to automate applications on the Apple Watch.
I would suggest creating a new entry on our Uservoice, where other users can vote for this feature.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,
