The Perfecto Continuous Quality Lab strives to provide our customers with access to mobile devices for the purpose of running unit tests, application tests either manually (interactive mode) or using automation. The devices connected to the CQ Lab controllers run different versions of the popular mobile device Operating Systems (OS). However, older versions of these OS may be considered no longer relevant for the purposes of our customers and therefore are declared to be in End-Of-Life (EOL) state.

EOL state, relative to a Device OS, means:

  1. We will NOT actively remove devices with EOL versions.
  2. Users are encouraged to upgrade those devices ASAP to a newer supported version.
  3. Perfecto will no longer provide fixes to devices operating an EOL system version.
  4. Perfecto will not actively test its releases on such devices.

The guiding principle for moving an OS version to EOL state is:

An OS version with LESS then 1% of market share within it’s OS family will be declared EOL.

Any mobile platform with LESS then 1% of TOTAL market share (e.g. Blackberry) will be declared EOL.  

The following table reflects the data that Perfecto uses and the current EOL state of the different OS/Platforms in this regard (data based on information from Apteligent Data):
