42Gears Announces AstroFarm Support for iOS and iPadOS
An iOS or iPadOS device can be connected to the private device farm by any employee in any location. Anyone in the network can claim the device once it is made available online by the user.
Fremont, CA: AstroFarm, 42Gears' private device farm solution, presently supports iOS and iPadOS devices in addition to Android. This is a huge step forward for companies that already own the Apple devices required for testing and are looking for ways to provide device access over long distances for app testing. This expands on AstroFarm's device functionality, which previously aided Android-based DevOps processes.
"As an alternative to public device farms, AstroFarm helps firms get better ROI on devices they already own," stated Prakash Gupta, co-founder, and COO of 42Gears. "Now that the solution supports iOS and iPadOS, more companies than ever before can complete essential mobile application development processes remotely."
AstroFarm users can now perform the following tasks with enrolled iOS and iPadOS devices:
- Connect and Share from Anywhere: An iOS or iPadOS device can be connected to the private device farm by any employee in any location. Anyone in the network can claim the device once it is made available online by the user.
Remote Control and Remote View: Anyone with a remote device can remotely view and control the iPhone or iPad screen. This allows for remote DevOps testing with these devices. When users are finished, they can immediately make devices available for others to use.
Additional features for iOS and iPadOS devices are currently in development, according to AstroFarm's product roadmap.
