iOS applications are growing and evolving. To keep pace with application updates and changes, teams need to build code in a reliable way and test as often as they want. You can achieve this through automating the process to build and test your iOS applications with a CI/CD platform. You will need to run your builds on Apple hardware. But allocating hardware for each build can be expensive and become difficult to maintain as your environment grows.
Anka integrates with your CI/CD pipeline to accelerate your applications lifecycle. You can run macOS VMs to manage multiple CI/CD jobs simultaneously. Its container-like virtualization allows you to save VM templates providing guaranteed on-demand clean build environments. CI/CD jobs run inside of an ephemeral VM so you don’t have to clean it after each run and can also ensure a specific state of the VM each time you start one.
