Regionalization in iOS 17.4 - Impact on Testing Strategies

While 17.4 isn’t the first time regional limitations and differences are incorporated into iOS, they are highly visible in this release. How are your teams adapting their testing strategies?

  • Are you already factoring regional differences into your automated and manual test systems? Do you use simulators/emulators with location spoofing or other methods? What other techniques or tools could you share?

  • How are you thinking about regression testing as specific OS features exhibit regional behavior differences? For example, deep links to your app that work from Safari might behave differently when opened in Chrome, Firefox, or other browsers now permitted as default in the EU. What factors of your app make this important for you to think about?

I appreciate the conversation and any insights and experiences as we think about new tips and tricks to share with the iOS dev community.
