The Start application function is used to open an application on the device. This is a preferred alternative to using visual analysis because it ensures a successful launch on different devices. The below list includes useful Start application identifiers for several iOS default apps and menus that you include in your script.

Example: Navigate to the Settings screen by using:

  • The Start application command:
    Application identifier: com.apple.Preferences
    This option helps us to create a generic function.
  • Visual analysis:
    Click on Settings.
    This step can be different depending on the device.
