✍️ About

πŸ“± Framework that allows to get extended information about an iOS device.

πŸ“š Features

  • Device Type information
    • Easily get a device's identifier
    • Determine if an app running on a simulator or on an actual device
    • Includes information about an each iOS device
  • Device Storage status such as:
    • Total space
    • Free space
    • Used space
    • You can format the data using various units (by using ByteCountFormatter.Units)
  • Device Orientation information
    • Check whether the device is in .portrait or .landscape orientation without the need to make boilerplate UIDevice.current.orientation calls & if/else checks
    • You can use isPortrait property if you'd like
  • Device's Internet Connection status
    • Super easily check whether your device is connected to the internet
    • You can get the reachability status as well

✈️ Usage

Getting device's identifier:

let identifiers = UIDevice.current.deviceType
// `identifiers` will hold the corresponding devices' identifiers depending on your `iOS` model

Determing how much storage has left:

// Will print something like this:
// 139,197.3 MB

// Or you can change the unit type to Gigabytes:
// 139.16 GB

UIDevice.current.storageStatus.getFreeSpace(.useGB, includeUnitPostfix: false)
// If you don't want to get GB, MB postfixes then specify an optional parameter for `includeUnitPostfix`:
// 139.16

Checking the device's orientation:

let orienation = UIDevice.current.deviceOrientation

switch orientation {
  case .portrait:
  case .landscape:

Getting the internet connection status:

let internet = UIDevice.current.internetConnection

guard internet.connection == .open else { 
  throw NetworkError.isNotAvailabe("Missing internet connection")

    • ☐ NotificationCenter observer support
  • β˜‘ Device orientation
    • ☐ NotificationCenter observer support
  • ☐ Interface orientation
    • ☐ NotificationCenter observer support


  • There is just one main rule for contributors - please include your extensions in separete files. It's important since such extension can be more easily referenced and reused.
