Upgrade Apple Device Detection

Implement all the latest techniques for iOS 13 iPhone and iPad

Author: Benjamin CB

51Degrees released the second and final stage of its post iOS 12.2 device detection solution for Apple iPad and iPhone during August 2019 after extensive verification with iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 betas. (iPadOS is formally splitting from iOS in version 13)

Unlike previous versions of Apple device detection, the solution is being made available as optional JavaScript files to provide web developers finer grained control over the deployment. Read this blog to understand what’s different and how to deploy it with 51Degrees device detection.

Responsive Web Design: Is this the only way?

Responsive Web Design has its uses, but it's not enough to meet ever changing consumer expectations.

Author: Benjamin CB

Responsive Web Design (RWD) has long been the go-to choice for web designers and marketers looking to build and optimize their websites. And with good reason; it does a fairly good job. It’s nice knowing that you can create a template for your website, and it will just ‘work’ on all screen sizes.

That said, consumer expectations are ever changing, and the journeys users expect to take on desktop may not be what they expect on small screen mobile phones. A survey conducted in 2018 by DataIQ and Tealium focusing on GDPR identified that consumers expect their experience to be different on each device.

This poses a question – how can Responsive Web Design be enhanced to better support cross-device journey optimizations?

51Degrees: More Than Three Times Faster!

51Degrees compares performance of our enhanced algorithm on three different commodity hardware platforms.

51Degrees is regularly evaluated against competitors DeviceAtlas and WURFL from ScientiaMobile for performance, accuracy and memory consumption. This blog post builds on the previous performance blog from 2016 with the same commodity hardware; 1) a Raspberry Pi, 2) a low-end desktop PC and 3) a high-end multi CPU server, but using an all new algorithm.

Website Optimisation for Apple devices - iPad and iPhone

51Degrees shares updated JavaScript to enable device detection for Apple devices

Author: Marketing

In 2015 we released a detailed blog on Device Detection for Apple iPhone and iPad. Since then Apple has released the iPhone 6s, 6s+, 7, 7+, 8, 8+, X, XS, XS Max and XR. Identifying Apple devices can be challenging. When putting plans in place to optimise websites for mobile devices like Apple, companies have two choices. Try and run a solution internally or simply have 51Degrees do the work for you with the added benefits of the Apple device properties we provide in our data files.

Because we endeavour to support companies and hobbyists with our unique open source solutions, we are sharing some JavaScript that will enable you to set up an internal solution if you wish. We would, however, encourage you to save yourself the time and effort and use our data files to support your strategic website optimisation decisions.
