Watch out this video for complete Uipath mobile automation step by step guide.

Hi, Can you please provide steps for iOS configuration as well?

Follow below steps:


I understand you, you are going to follow these steps for the problem with the App.

  1. go to this link'home'
  2. you select Appium
  3. search Step 2: Upload your App, and upload the app


  1. you are going to copy the capability
  2. you are going to create a new capability in your devices called “app” and in “values” you paste what was copied in step four

and ready :slight_smile:

browstack will store your apps. As you are creating a capability “app” within your Devices you will not have to create a new “application” in the Device Manager

Even you can do the same with Mac Machine and pass the MacMachine IP address and your system and the Mac machine should be in the same network’

thanks to @Santiago_Alexander_Astros
