Did you know that with DeviceAtlas it is possible to detect the exact iPhone models through the client-side method? Here are all Apple devices which you can identify using our device detection solution.
Detecting Apple hardware with client-side component
This approach works for the vast majority of devices on the web. However, in Apple's case, the User-Agent string only contains enough information to detect the hardware type, but not the exact model. By simply parsing UAs, you only learn that the device is an iPhone or an iPad.
The DeviceAtlas team solved this problem by identifying subtle differences between Apple devices which are distinguishable using the client-side component. In this way, accurate iPhone model detection is possible with no impact on web performance.
