Ios – How to get device make and model on iOS

iosipadiphoneobjective-c

I was wondering if it's possible to determine what kind of iPhone (for example) the currentdevice is? I know it's possible to get the model through
NSString *deviceType = [[UIDevice currentDevice] model];
which will just return whether I have an "iPhone" or an "iPod", BUT I was wondering if it's possible to detect/know if I have an iPhone 3GS vs. and iPhone 4 vs. an iPhone 4S (in actuality, all I really want to do is determine if I have a 3G or not, because I'm doing fairly graphics intensive stuff).

So yeah, let me know, thank you!

Best Solution

EITHER try this library: http://github.com/erica/uidevice-extension/ (by Erica Sadun). (The library is 7-8 years old, and hence is obsolete)

(Sample Code):

    [[UIDevice currentDevice] platformType]   // ex: UIDevice4GiPhone
    [[UIDevice currentDevice] platformString] // ex: @"iPhone 4G"

OR You can use this method:

You can get the device model number using uname from sys/utsname.h. For example:

Objective-C

    #import <sys/utsname.h> // import it in your header or implementation file.

    NSString* deviceName()
    {
        struct utsname systemInfo;
        uname(&systemInfo);
    
        return [NSString stringWithCString:systemInfo.machine
                                  encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
    }

Swift 3

    extension UIDevice {
        var modelName: String {
            var systemInfo = utsname()
            uname(&systemInfo)
            let machineMirror = Mirror(reflecting: systemInfo.machine)
            let identifier = machineMirror.children.reduce("") { identifier, element in
                guard let value = element.value as? Int8, value != 0 else { return identifier }
                return identifier + String(UnicodeScalar(UInt8(value)))
            }
            return identifier
        }
    }

    print(UIDevice.current.modelName)

The result should be:
