In a previous article on our blog we explained the difference between manual tests and automated tests. Here we are interested in automated tests, particularly their advantages and strengths.

What is an automated test?

Unlike the manual test, the automated test runs without the intervention of a human. This method requires the use of computer solutions to perform the predetermined actions in a script and analyze the product on specific paths.

 

Why choose automated testing?

The purpose of automated testing is to simplify testing efforts as much as possible with scripts. The test is then performed according to this, the results are reported and compared with the results of the previous tests.

iOS11 and low battery : is this really a bug ?

[fa icon='calendar'] Sep 29, 2017 10:55:34 PM / by Delphine GUYOT GILER posted in Apple , #iOS11

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

After the production problems with the iPhone X, and the feedback from some iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus owners that they were experiencing crackling noises during their phone conversations, the new iOS 11 operating system is now being called into question.


Lately, a number of iPhone owners who have installed iOS 11 have complained of decreased battery life. This has been confirmed by the mobile security firm, Wandera, who stated that a 60% decrease in battery life (which translates into 96 minutes of use under iOS 11 versus 240 minutes under iOS 10) was observed after monitoring 50,000 users equipped with its security software.  A panic is now settling in among iPhone users, as evidenced by the frustrated messages appearing on social media and related forums. Some have gone so far as to accuse the Cupertino-based company of planned obsolescence.

Friday November 25th, it’s Black Friday. Jane Doe wakes up and goes to the Macy’s website to shop online and hoping to have good deals. After typing “macys.com” in the search bar, a message appears and asks her to wait ten seconds before it refreshes automatically and finally end’s up on the homepage website. The reason for this is that the website traffic had increase more than usual.

 

Until that time, Jane Doe is biding her time. As soon as the website is redirected to the homepage, she finally starts shopping. She now tries to add items to her shopping cart but it doesn’t work. She’s unable to buy any items.

 

This story could be fiction but in this case, it is not. As a matter of fact, this happened in November 2016 to millions of Americans on Macy’s website and on other websites during Black Friday.
