There have been no replies to this question in almost 1 year. Does anyone know if Apple TV is even on the roadmap for Appium? I noticed Dan Cuellar mentioned that the latest version supported the you.i tv framework which itself supports Apple TV, so there’s that. But as far as built-in native tvOS support in Appium . . . anyone . . . Bueller?

Hi, I have faced with the same problem - looks like basically there is no information regarding tvOS and Appium support at all.
There is an error while trying to start Appium inspection against tvOS:


My caps are:
{
“platformName”: “tvOS”,
“platformVersion”: “11.1”,
“deviceName”: “Apple TV”,
“app”: “~/Documents/demo.app”,
“automationName”: “XCUITest”
}

If anyone knows something regarding the tvOS support - please reply. Thanks ahead!
