In our continuing efforts to provide the best performing, most up-to-date platform for our users, Sauce Labs will discontinue support for the following components and Appium versions on Sauce Real Device Cloud:


Appium Versions

  • 1.8.0
  • 1.8.1
  • 1.10.1

We recommend upgrading as soon as possible to the latest Appium Release, 1.14.0


Components

  • iOS 9 Devices (EU and US Datacenter)
  • Android 5.0 Devices (EU and US Datacenter)

End of Support: August 30th 2019


We made this decision due to reduced market share of these versions, along with diminished usage by our customers. We will be also expanding our device catalog to include more major and minor versions of Android and iOS, including newer releases such as iOS 13 and Android Q soon.


Happy Testing!
