Appium execution extremely slow


I am finding that tests are run extremely slow, especially in iOS. It takes upto 15 mins to run a single test
I am running Appium 1.6.3, Java client 4.1.2, node 6.9.5.

Has anyone experienced the same?

Any workarounds or tips to speed up the process?


I had the same until I updated to 1.6.4, check it out and tell us :wink:

in general XCTest is slower then “UI Automation”. i have 30% slowness in Simulator. not more.
To speedup NEVER user xPath but NsPredicate instead. It is times faster.
