UIDeviceHardware is a class originally created in a gist by Jaybles. It allows querying of the current users device, and returns a human formatted string.

It is written as a class method, to allow use without direct instantiation.


// "iPhone 5C (GSM)"
NSString *platformString = [UIDeviceHardware platformString];
// "iPhone 5C"
NSString *simpleString = [UIDeviceHardware platformStringSimple];


This class can be installed with Swift Package Manager, Cocoapods, or by directly copying the files into your source code.
