How to Launch an Unreleased iOS App Test 

Step 1. Create an App Test 
Select Create an unmoderated test in the New menu.




Step 2. Select App
Select whether you will be testing a prototype, website, or app. In this case, we'll select App.


Select Participants 

Choose whether you want to test with the UserTesting Panel, My Panel, or My Recruit. To test an unreleased app with My Recruit participants, you must use a TestFlight public beta link.


Add a Link or Upload the App

To test with TestFlight, paste the public beta link in the text field. To learn how to create a public beta link with Test Flight, see Beta Testing Made Simple with TestFlight at Apple. 



To upload an app, click Upload App and drag your file to the drop area. UserTesting instruments uploaded apps so they can only be used during the test. See our additional documentation if your developers have questions about provisioning.



Note: You cannot test both iOS and Android apps at the same time. To test the same app on both iOS and Android devices, create a test for one platform, then create a similar test for the other. 

Select your audience and build your test plan as you normally would. Participants automatically receive the app when they start the test.

To learn more about selecting an audience and building a test plan, check out How to launch an app test.
