How to install the latest XCUITest driver?

Today I installed the latest version of appium with npm install -g appium. I noticed in the output that the XCUITest driver installed was version 2.4.2. However, the XCUITest driver has been updated a number of times since then.

It’s had some notable improvements (like fixes to swiping), so I really want to give it a whirl!

I have a couple questions about this:

  1. Is there a way to override what gets installed?
  2. Who is in charge of determining when these tools should be updated in the main appium install? I’d like to file a feature request to make this official.

Add “–no-shrinkwrap” key to end.
