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.
