General Information

All methods usage Objective-C code. You could use Objective-C in your application on C++. All you need it just add new class with header *.h and implementation file *.mm. Then add this files to you *.pro using special keywords: OBJECTIVE_HEADERS += \

   Helpers/Apple/redminedevicehelper.h

OBJECTIVE_SOURCES += \

   Helpers/Apple/redminedevicehelper.mm

Also you need to use frameworks for get access to basic Objective-C classes and methods:

  • UIKit #import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
  • Foundation #import <Foundation/Foundation.h>

In *.pro file you need add this frameworks as a library: LIBS += -framework Foundation -framework CoreFoundation -framework UIKit


Methods

Device Type

If you need detect your iOS or tvOS device (iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV) in your application you can use code bellow: BOOL isPhone = ([UIDevice currentDevice].userInterfaceIdiom == UIUserInterfaceIdiomPhone); BOOL isPad = ([UIDevice currentDevice].userInterfaceIdiom == UIUserInterfaceIdiomPad); BOOL isAppleTV = ([UIDevice currentDevice].userInterfaceIdiom == UIUserInterfaceIdiomTV);

Device model name

Name of device: QString model = QString::fromNSString([[UIDevice currentDevice] model]);

Device OS Version

Name of device OS version (although you should use QOperatingSystemVersion instead of this method): QString model = QString::fromNSString([[UIDevice currentDevice] systemVersion]);

Device scale factor and retina detection

//Device scale factor float scale = (float)([UIScreen mainScreen].scale);

//Type of device display bool isRetina = ([[UIScreen mainScreen] respondsToSelector:@selector(displayLinkWithTarget:selector:)] && ([UIScreen mainScreen].scale == 2.0)) ? true : false;

Device UUID

QString uuid = QString::fromNSString( [[[UIDevice currentDevice] identifierForVendor] UUIDString]);
