iOS Devices

From Graal Bible

The following is a list of released iOS devices. Devices with multiple model identifiers are identical devices except for some internal detail, such as the type of radio. GSM denotes that the device uses an AT&T-style radio, whereas CDMA indicates a Verizon-style radio.

This site is useful in looking up model IDs for Apple devices.


iOS device identifiers can be retrieved by using the clientside function getiPhoneModel.

temp.deviceID = getiPhoneModel(); = temp.deviceID;

Device Tiers

It is useful to split devices into tiers so that effects which may not be possible on older devices can still be used on new ones. The following code can be used to determine a device tier:

public function getDeviceTier() {
  temp.deviceID = getiPhoneModel();
  if (temp.deviceID in {"iPod1,1", "iPhone1,1", "iPhone1,2"}) {
    return 0;
  if (temp.deviceID in {"iPod2,1", "iPhone2,1", "iPod3,1"}) {
    return 1;
  if (temp.deviceID in {"iPhone3,1", "iPhone3,3", "iPod4,1", "iPad1,1"}) {
    return 2;
  if (temp.deviceID in {"iPad2,1", "iPad2,2", "iPad2,3"}) {
    return 3;
  return 999; // computers or unknown devices
