Silk Test Workbench enables you to test a mobile application on an iOS device or an iOS Simulator.

Because of significant changes by Apple in iOS 9.3 in comparison to the previous versions of iOS, Silk Test supports testing mobile applications on iOS 9.3 or later. For a list of the supported iOS versions, refer to the Release Notes.

Note: Testing mobile applications on iOS 11 requires Xcode 9. When using Xcode 9 on a Mac, testing on physical devices and Simulators with iOS versions prior to iOS 11 that are connected to or running on this Mac is not supported. Use Xcode 8.3 to test physical devices and Simulators with iOS 9.3 and iOS 10.
Tip: To test on iOS versions prior to iOS 9.3, you can use Silk Test 17.5. The following table shows the major changes when testing on iOS with Silk Test 19.5 in comparison to Silk Test 17.5:
