caps.setCapability("deviceName", "iPhone Simulator");  

//Put your device bundle id

caps.setCapability("bundleid", "put your app bundle Id");

//put your app path on which you are going to test

driver = new IOSDriver(new URL(""), caps);

//If you want to test for logIn
public void testiOS() throws InterruptedException, IOException {
driver.findElement(By.xpath("put here username textbox xpath")).sendkeys(“put here username”);

driver.findElement(By.xpath("put here password textbox xpath")).sendkeys(“put here password”);
driver.findElement(By.name("put here logIn button identifier")).click();

//Wait for 2 seconds


//Take screenshots after login and save
File scrFile = ((TakesScreenshot)driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);

//Put path where you want to save the screenshot
