General info

Randoop.NET is an API fuzzing unit test generator for .NET libraries.

Randoop.NET creates test cases by a sequence of API method calls and it improves on random and static test generation by incorporating feedback during test generation.

XCTest is the default testing framework for unit tests, performance tests, and some level of UI tests for iOS apps.

XCTest framework is a testing framework that enables developers write basic unit tests, performance tests, and some level of UI tests for iOS apps.
xUnit

Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

Yes

XCTest contains setup() and teardown() fixture methods for setting up and destroying test environments
Group fixtures
