We are happy to announce SeeTest version 12.1.

This version completes the move to 64-bit architecture, expands use case support with integration to native authentication tools and expanded use of test results data.

As per our commitment, the SeeTest Continuous Testing Platform supports the latest models, including iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR



Main Release Highlights:

Automatic Upgrade to 64 bit architecture

Cloud server and device host machine software will now run in 64-bit, enabling better resource utilization and improving system performance.

All required configuration changes are handled automatically during the upgrade process - files and folders will be automatically updated to support the change. 

Cloud folder will now be located under C:\Program Files instead of C:\Program Files (x86).
