How to determine the current iPhone model information?

iOSMobile DevelopmentiPhone/iPad

iOS Provides a UIDevice class which has all the information about your iPhone that does not violate any privacy laws Apple has.

Using the UIDevice we can access information like −

  • UIDevice.current.localizedModel − this returns the localized version of model

  • UIDevice.current.model − this returns model of current device, e.g. @"iPhone", @"iPod touch"

  • UIDevice.current.name − this returns the current name of the device in use, e.g. "My iPhone"

  • UIDevice.current.systemName − this returns the system name e.g. @"iOS"

  • UIDevice.current.systemVersion − this returns the system version e.g. @"4.0"

  • UIDevice.current.batteryLevel − this returns the battery level, if it is between 0 to 1, it will return the value otherwise if the state is UIDeviceBatteryStateUnknown it returns -1.0

  • UIDevice.current.batteryState − this returns the battery state, it has four possible values as per apple APIs

public enum BatteryState : Int {
   case unknown
   case unplugged
   case charging
   case full
}

You can write the above code in View Controller's viewDidLoad and print to see the result.

print(UIDevice.current.model)
print(UIDevice.current.localizedModel)
print(UIDevice.current.systemVersion)

Which gave the following result while running on an iPhone 7 plus simulator.

iPhone
iPhone
12.0

Here is the result and example of how the above code can be used.
