Selenium vs Xcode: What are the differences?
Developers describe Selenium as "Web Browser Automation". Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well. On the other hand, Xcode is detailed as "The complete toolset for building great apps". The Xcode IDE is at the center of the Apple development experience. Tightly integrated with the Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, Xcode is an incredibly productive environment for building amazing apps for Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
Selenium belongs to "Browser Testing" category of the tech stack, while Xcode can be primarily classified under "Integrated Development Environment".
"Automates browsers" is the top reason why over 149 developers like Selenium, while over 127 developers mention "IOS Development" as the leading cause for choosing Xcode.
Selenium is an open source tool with 14.9K GitHub stars and 4.97K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Selenium's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Xcode has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1051 company stacks & 603 developers stacks; compared to Selenium, which is listed in 776 company stacks and 440 developer stacks.

Even though React Native takes care of most of the heavy lifting, there are still some cases where we need xcode. These cases include app icon integration, mobile deployments, loading screens, ect...
가장 강력한 웹 UI / UX 테스트 툴 이지만, 문제도 많다. iframe 안에 있는 건 잘 select 가 안되기도 하고, 화면이 작아 컴포넌트가 화면에 보이지 않으면 또 select 할 수 없다. 하지만 브라우저를 있는 그대로 제어 할 수 있다는 게 가장 큰 매력이다.
ps. selenide 와 같이 쓰면 코드가 많이 개선된다.
Xcode is our primary development platform for iOS applications, with a very fully featured set of dev tools for the platform. For everything else, there's Sublime Text 3.
Maintaining and expanding automated regression tests is one of my primary responsibilities at CrowdTwist. We use Selenium to test the front-end parts of our platform.
Experience with Xcode in the context of iOS development. This includes Storyboards, Debugging tools and the Simulator.
QA and Testing have been so much easier with the help of its simulators on Apple Devices like; iPhones and iPads.
PrometheanTV provides SDKs for IOS devices and utilizes the XCode IDE for development and testing purposes.
Used Selenium web-driver for automated QA testing in continuous integration and continuous deployment.
