Website Optimisation for Apple devices - iPad and iPhone

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

Author: Anonym

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+ and more recently the 8 and 8+. 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.

Apple Standalone on Device Detection

Exposing the crippling solution used to detect iPhone and iPad models

Device vendors as varied as the mighty Samsung, to brands like Pantech and Micromax all recognize the importance of identifying different device models when accessing web sites. However Apple do not fully support this approach.

Some device detection solutions have tried to address the problem by artificially stressing the iPhone or iPad to determine how quickly its processor can complete iterative tasks. Understanding how the device performs under stress provides an indication as to the CPU available and therefore the model of device. The approach can yield more information but ironically at the expense of user experience as the page load time increases and the battery is drained more rapidly.

If every web site were to stress iPhones and iPads to gain model information the web would slow down for Apple users. This isn’t in Apple’s interest. However if Apple make a simple change the problem can be avoided.

How many of them can browse independently?

Author: S.Parker

It seems that the major phone makers have decided now is the time for us to all buy smart watches but what do they actually do for the consumer. They are supposed to make our lives easier by placing all the information that we were getting from our pocket and phones on to our wrist. But will this effect the way we browse the Internet?

Vendor battle heats up

Apple still leads the way with tablet browsing but changes may be ahead

Looking at the recent report compiled by ABI Research, Apple and Samsung lead the way in tablet sales but the likes of Amazon, Asus, Lenovo, Acer and even Tesco are now battling it out to join them at the top table. We take a slightly different angle on this and investigate where these vendors are in comparison to each other when it comes down to their customers using them to access the internet.
