Hi Gil,

Due to the actual device model information not being in the user agent string and iOS versions being available on multiple models, it is exceedingly difficult to identify a specific iOS model from just the user agent string. However, in a limited set of circumstances, we can identify the iOS device using an optional model identifier that is present in the User-Agent string.

Apart from this scenario, we have other products that can perform device model level detection on iOS strings that leverage these device profiles to provide device information, eg. WURFL.io.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Aaron

Hi Aaron

I have exactly the same problem but I have my device detection host as a service that accepts a user-agent string and I can't really use the JavaScript solution.
What can you suggest for this scenario.

Regards

Hi Riaan,

At the moment, the JavaScript solution is the only available solution in regards to consistent iPhone model detection. While I currently cannot make any guarantees, I will surely let you know should anything change.

Thanks,

Aaron
