ios_utsname_ext

pub package build Buy Me A Coffee

Extension method for translation ios utsname to full product name (e.g. iPhone 6 Plus for 'iPhone7,1').

Why this extension package?

When using the device_info package you get the following (extract from the readme file):

import 'package:device_info/device_info.dart';

DeviceInfoPlugin deviceInfo = DeviceInfoPlugin();
AndroidDeviceInfo androidInfo = await deviceInfo.androidInfo;
print('Running on ${androidInfo.model}');  // e.g. "Moto G (4)"

IosDeviceInfo iosInfo = await deviceInfo.iosInfo;
print('Running on ${iosInfo.utsname.machine}');  // e.g. "iPhone7,1"

As you can see, for Android you get a rather good product name. But for iOS... you get iPhone7,1'. This extension package gives you the real product name by adding.iOSProductName`:

import 'package:ios_utsname_ext/extension.dart';

...

print('Running on ${iosInfo.utsname.machine.iOSProductName}');  // will give you `iPhone 6 Plus`

Source of product models

The list is maintained at https://github.com/fieldnotescommunities/ios-device-identifiers. The repo provides an updated .json file.

Based upon that .json file the code for this extension package is generated. When the repo is updated this package will be updated.
