Real Apple devices are a new feature that BrowserStack has introduced. At the moment (August 2015) there are unreliable. Excerpt from an email reply from BrowserStack support: we provide real iOS devices (Beta) and iOS simulators for Selenium browser testing on Automate. Since these devices are in beta, you might encounter a few problems while running tests on them. To avoid this issue, we would suggest you try running your tests on iOS simulators. See More
It's not very clear if real iOS devices are available for automated testing. On one hand, https://www.browserstack.com/mobile-browser-emulator is all about emulators for both Android and iOS. On the other, https://www.browserstack.com/automate says "Test across real iOS devices and Android mobile emulators" Then again, https://www.browserstack.com/list-of-browsers-and-platforms?product=automate lists "real iOS devices".

The Selenium WebDriver script examples, by default, don't explain what to put in browser_api_name and os_api_name. This leads to an UnknownError: Invalid browser_api_name / os_api_name combination specified error, if you just copy and paste the script. Instead, first select an OS and browser combination, and the script wizard will fill in the '?'s for you. See More
The free plan covers a lot, you can have up to 3 test suites, and you can run your automated tests as many times as you want. The pro plan includes some very advanced options that you might need only if you're working with a team (for example, the collaboration feature, schedule test run, API for Jenkins, etc.). See More
If you are using the free plan, keep in mind that the test suites created there are scheduled to be deleted after around 2 weeks. Endtest will send you a notification email the day before mentioning "Test suites from users who are not on the PRO Plan get automatically deleted after some time," and offering for you to upgrade to PRO.

Their pricing plan ($79/month or $650/year) includes team plan upgrade, which means the whole team, regardless of the number of users, will only need to subscribe to the $79/month or $650/year plan. This includes unlimited test runs, test exports, recordings, etc. See More
