How device detection works
Armed with the right device detection tools, your online content can get accurate device-specific information in real time
Device detection technology uses HTTP headers such as the User-Agent and User-Agent Client Hints to gather device information.
The User-Agent has been around for decades. All the information on the device’s model, browser, and software is contained within a combination of characters called the User-Agent string.
User-Agent Client Hints are a recent addition to the HTTP header family. Information that was previously kept in one neat place within the User-Agent string is now divided between multiple headers.
