How to swipe up on ios device to terminate app - Device Farm

0

We are observing different behavior when running our automation tests on a physical iPhone versus a Device Farm iPhone 12. On our local physical device, using the code below, we are able to successfully swipe up to terminate the app. However, the same code does not reliably swipe up to terminate the app when running on a Device Farm device.

What can be implemented to resolve this?

window_size = frapp.driver.get_window_size() logging.info(f"The device window size is: {window_size}") param = { "duration": "1", "element": None, "fromX": window_size["width"] / 2, "fromY": window_size["height"] / 0.8, "toX": window_size["width"] / 2, "toY": window_size["height"] * 0.8, } logging.info( f"The parameters used for the first swipe up to open app switch carousel with parameters: {param}" ) frapp.driver.execute_script("mobile: dragFromToForDuration", param) param = { "duration": ".3", "element": None, "fromX": window_size["width"] / 1.3, "fromY": window_size["height"] * 0.8, "toX": window_size["width"] * 2, "toY": -1000, } logging.info( f"The parameters used for the second swipe is to kill the app with parameters: {param}" ) frapp.driver.execute_script("mobile: dragFromToForDuration", param)

  1. Have you confirmed this also works as expected in a local emulator ?
  2. Have you compared the error logs from Device Farm tests vs success logs from physical device

  • I validated that this works successfully on a simulator.

    The below error is returned in device farm logs. This error is not present on local executions on Physical or simulator device:

Issue solved by upgrading to appium 2.2.1.
