Locating iOS device ID using Xcode

iOS device ID, or UDID, of the rented iOS device is required to start Appium locally.

Ensure that the following requirements are met:
  • Rent an iOS device in the Remote TestKit service, and enable Xcode Connector. (Learn more.)
  • Xcode detected the iOS device.

For the device identifier, perform the following steps:

  1. Open Xcode, and then click Devices from the Window menu.
  2. Select Connected device.
  3. Under Device Information, you will get an identifier, or UDID, of the device.
    Remember: This UDID is necessary when configuring Appium server locally, and defining desired capabilities for the assign cloud device built-in action. (Learn more.)
