i am a QA testing a hybrid app using Appium. i noticed that when inspecting the ios elements using the Appium element locator, the ios doesnt not return many locators… for example the Android have index,text, resource-id, name, classname and many more but the ios reurn few attributes making it hard to write a xpath or classname to locate or interact with the element…
You should use ios-webkit-debugger-proxy. to access the webelements.
Refer Appium doc:
