Simulate biometric authentication within apps
Simulate biometric features on the device such as FingerPrint and TouchID so that remote testers can test security features of an application.
An implementation of this is being targeted for an upcoming release.

We are aware of Appium biometric authentication API's for simulators, but what we would really like is something that would allow us to test the actual biometric code on the phone's OS. We've seen some differences between various versions of Android (Google, Samsung KNOX, etc) and iOS. Actually being able to perform an actual FaceID scan or fingerprint scan would be really cool. Get out the Lego MindStorms and build a robot finger actuator? Or perhaps use a Raspberry PI and finger actuator? You could grab the temp inside the cart at the same time from the PI.
