51Degrees User Agent Analysis Oct 2018 - New Apples on the Block

51Degrees shares popular User Agent examples including iPhone XS/XS Max

We currently have a device database of >51,000* unique device models and >1,020,00 device combinations. These device types include Smartphones, Tablets, Feature Phones, Consoles, eReaders, MediaHubs, Smartwatches and TVs.

In previous User-Agent analysis blogs we have covered:

In this blog we include User-Agent examples of the recently launched Apple devices (iPhone XS/iPhone XS Max) and the soon to launch iPhone XR. We also explain the workaround in place to detect Apple devices despite their tricky nature!

Why are Apple devices tricky?

In a nutshell, Apple User-Agents differ from their Android counterparts due to the majority of User-Agents requests not including exact model information.

See example Android versus Apple devices below

Please note: Only certain applications provide the iPhone model in the User-Agent, examples include Facebook/Instagram/Snapchat/Google Mobile.

iPhone XS (with model info)

Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 12_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Snapchat/10.41.1.1 (iPhone11,2; iOS 12.0; gzip)

iPhone XS (without model info)

Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 12_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/11.2 Mobile/15E148 Safari/604.1

Samsung S8 (with model info)

Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 7.0; SM-G950F Build/NRD90M) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/56.0.2924.87 Mobile Safari/537.36

Client-Side Override Method

A Client-Side Override method is required to return certain properties when the request to the device is made, in order to differentiate between models otherwise ‘generic’ iPhone results will be returned. For more detail on detecting iPhones and iPads read this blog.

In order to provide optimal user experience, it is as important as ever for companies to understand how users are accessing their content online!

Get Accurate Data

At 51Degrees accuracy is an important factor of our Device Detection product. To make sure all data points are accurate we validate data using vendor sources and other strategic partnerships (so no scraping of 3rd party websites or websites containing leaked information). To continually grow and validate our database of devices, browsers, and operating systems, we collaborate with various sectors to receive usage data. Our solution is trusted by over 1.5 million websites and data partners such as SpotX, programmatic advertsing companies like Centro, media companies such as Tencent and Seznam, and Global brands like Webtrekk, eBay, Resident Advisor, Guess and Disney.
