Author: Rob Bateman, James Rosewell

51Degrees identify Apple iPhone and iPad models with over 99% accuracy. One of the techniques considered in the solution was GPU benchmarking. The technique showed promise but was not considered performant enough for production deployment.

Author: Benjamin CB

Detecting the precise iPad or iPhone after iOS 12.2 is a bit of a headache, but so important for accurate analytics given Apple’s dominance in the tablet and smartphone market. Traditional User-Agent based solutions need to be enhanced with JavaScript.

51Degrees have adapted the JavaScript used to enable web developers to gain insight into the precise Apple device being used. This technical blog follows on from a previous blog concerning image hashing and describes the second stage of the solution developed and when to deploy it.

You don’t have to be rich to iOS

(but it helps)

Author: Anonym

The battle between iOS and Android is usually played out in the battlefield of the high street, where the two key mobile operating systems compete for sales.

The question we asked ourselves at 51Degrees.com was what does the battle look like out in the real world.

Elements of this article were featured in The Register. You can see the article here.
