Device Detection for Apple iPhone and iPad
Which techniques to use and avoid
51Degrees data analysis team stress tested a range of real iPhone and iPad devices, both old and new using all the major web browsers in order to determine if CPU stress testing is a viable additional method to identify iPhone and iPad models alongside User-Agent analysis, screen information and WebGL API
The full results are available for download along with the analysis of the differences between each device and browser.
