Includes broad IDE support. On the other hand, fastlane is detailed as "Connect all iOS deployment tools into one streamlined workflow". fastlane lets you define and run your deployment pipelines for different environments. It helps you unify your app’s release process and automate the whole process. fastlane connects all fastlane tools and third party tools, like CocoaPods.

Some of the features offered by Azure DevOps are:
