WURFL Data Change for Apple Devices

Postby datapharm » Wed Dec 19, 2012 4:22 am

We received your email about the change of the device_os capability for Apple devices - are you able to give an estimate of the time of day the change will be effective from on the 5th January? We do rely on this value for our website functionality and as the change is being implemented on a Saturday we need to schedule our code update to be as close as possible to the change.

Is this going to affect applications that use the XML repository file in any way?

The change we are making is that before January 5, 2013 at 9:00PM EST, the WURFL file that you obtain from us will contain the value "iPhone OS" for Apple devices, and after that date, it will contain the value "iOS". This can affect your application if you use the WURFL data like this:

Code: Select all

if ($device->getDeviceCapability("device_os") == "iPhone OS") {
    $this->render("AppleMobileSite");
}
After the change, you will need to use the following logic:

Code: Select all

if ($device->getDeviceCapability("device_os") == "iOS") {
    $this->render("AppleMobileSite");
}
