I am currently doing some research how to run parallel tests on both Android and IOS devices. I have done some reading on the Appium website and various posts that its possible to run parallel tests on Android devices but not IOS.
I managed to launch my tests running parallel on 2 Android devices by starting 2 Appium instances on different ports using the following commands:
appium -p 4727 -bp 4728 -U “05c98033f0d4db47” --chromedriver-port 9516
appium -p 4725 -bp 4731 -U “53db8955” --chromedriver-port 9518
My question is, is it possible to spin up another Appium instance on eg : port 4723, running tests on an IOS device/simulator, in parallel with the above two Appium instances? (port 4727 and 4725)
