Hello,

With the latest browser update from Sauce Labs, users can now run automated and manual tests on Safari 10 using Mac OS 10.11.

Desired capabilities to use -

DesiredCapabilities caps = DesiredCapabilities.safari();
caps.setCapability("platform", "OS X 10.11");
caps.setCapability("version", "10.0");

Platform configurator has been updated with the latest desired capabilities. Additionally, users who are interested in jumping on the latest browsers as soon as they are released should utilize "version":"latest" in their desired capabilities (more information on this feature can be found on our blog)

Happy testing!

Thanks,

The Sauce Labs Team.

As usual, please head over to the platform configurator for device capabilities. There are some caveats regarding testing on iOS 10.0, which are covered in this KB article. Most notably, you will need to target the new Appium version 1.6.0. Lastly, our planned devices are in our documentation, and you can follow along with our progress. Our team is currently working on iOS 10.1 support.

Thanks,

You can now use HTTPS in your Selenium and Appium scripts to communicate with the Sauce Labs browser cloud. All of our sample scripts in the Sauce Labs Sample Scripts and Sauce Labs Sample Framework Scripts GitHub repos have been updated to use HTTPS. You should update your own testing scripts as well to have the highest level of security for your communications with the Sauce Labs browser cloud. The exception is testing scripts that have been written in Python. The Selenium client bindings for Python do not support HTTPS. This is a known issue, which is being tracked in the Selenium issue tracker if you want more information, or to contribute to resolving this issue.
