New for XCUITest

To make it even easier to run your XCUITest tests in App Center, we’re happy to announce we’ve eliminated the need to modify your Xcode project. XCUITest tests can now run on App Center Test Cloud without linking the App Center XCUITest Extension framework. Removing the need for this extension greatly simplifies how end users can go from local testing to easily running on multiple devices in App Center Test Cloud.
