- What is a User-Agent?? This Blog explains the three key components identified in a User-Agent
- The increase of MediaHub/Console traffic.This blog contains examples of User-Agents for Smart TVs, MediaHubs and Consoles
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 (without model info)
Samsung S8 (with model info)
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!
