Dear Sauce user, 

Our product just keeps getting Saucier! To help you quickly find issues in your tests and release quality software faster, we are happy to announce an update to our tools. The Appium server log and iOS log are now available separately on This update is available to all customers currently using Simulators.

To view the changes please navigate to a test details page, click on the view logs tab and in the dropdown you will see ios-syslog.log available. The log is also available through the API.  The additional logs will only be available for testing moving forward and not retroactively. 

Happy Testing,
