Running test very slow using ios simulator?

I am using xcode 7.2, macos 10.11, appium version 1.4.16…

The simulator run test much slower than android.

Anyone know the reason and how to speed it up?

Hey I am not able to run the build script

print out a lot of error messages for me

Can you tell me your environment? xcode version, mac os version?

Mac os version: 10.10.5

Xcode version: 7.0.1

can u also let me know your simulator version (e.g iphone6 & 9.1)? and your sever capabilities settings

thanks a lot!

My Setup:

  • iOS 9.2
  • Xcode 7.2
  • Appium 1.4.13

When you build, did you point to the right version of simluator? i.e. 9.2 in your case? I had the same issue when I pointed to, i.e. 9.1 but i launch a 9.2 simluator and hence I see no increase in test run performance

Pay attention to this when you ./

SDKROOT = iphonesimulator9.1

Thanks a lot Alan! it works for me now.

By the way, I noticed that in appium github project, there is a instruments-without-delays submodule.

does it mean that this work around has been integrated with the new appium?

i tried but seems no luck. lol
