Perforce Leads Mobile Application Testing Market With Same-Day Support for iOS 17

Perfecto by Perforce provides same-day support for iOS 17 mobile application testing –helping customers prepare their applications for the major release ahead of the competition.

As the first to market with same-day mobile application testing support for iOS 17 and the new iPhone 15 series, Perfecto encourages app developers and testing teams to prepare their applications to handle the latest iOS version as soon as it becomes available. Since most iPhone users upgrade their devices immediately upon release, apps must be ready to handle the change.

Research from Global App Testing has shown that when apps are released onto the market with bugs or glitches, the costs can be astronomical.

“48% of users are less likely to use an app again if they are unhappy with its performance,” says Stephen Feloney, Vice President of Continuous Testing at Perforce, referencing a Global App Testing study. “For enterprises especially, a single hour of downtime due to a bug could cost in excess of one million.”

With both beta testing and day-one testing support for the latest operating systems and devices, Perfecto has always enabled customers to prepare their applications ahead of time, keeping them free from bugs or glitches and saving resources and reputation.

Developers and testing teams will need to test their applications against a host of new features arriving with the release of iOS 17 and the iPhone 15 series, including new widgets, app shortcuts, accessibility requirements, machine learning, gesture-based reactions, augmented reality affects, enhanced camera features, faster processing chips, faster WiFi capabilities, upgraded operating systems, and more.

Perfecto has consistently been ahead of the curve when it comes to same-day support for new releases—going back to 2007 with the first iPhone release—and continues that trajectory of innovation with the release of iOS 17. The iOS 17 release marks the sixteenth year that Perfecto is supporting a release on day one.
