***HOW TO DETECT MOBILE DEVICES USING JQUERY***

  • # April 17, 2013 at 3:59 am

    you can use this minified jQuery snippet to detect if your user is viewing using a mobile device. If you need to test for a specific device I’ve included a collection of JavaScript snippets below which can be used to detect various mobile handheld devices such as iPad, iPhone, iPod, iDevice, Andriod, Blackberry, WebOs and Windows Phone.

    /**
     * jQuery.browser.mobile (http://detectmobilebrowser.com/)
     * jQuery.browser.mobile will be true if the browser is a mobile device
     **/
    (function(a){jQuery.browser.mobile=/android.+mobile|avantgo|bada/|blackberry|blazer|compal|elaine|fennec|hiptop|iemobile|ip(hone|od)|iris|kindle|lge |maemo|midp|mmp|netfront|opera m(ob|in)i|palm( os)?|phone|p(ixi|re)/|plucker|pocket|psp|symbian|treo|up.(browser|link)|vodafone|wap|windows (ce|phone)|xda|xiino/i.test(a)||/1207|6310|6590|3gso|4thp|50[1-6]i|770s|802s|a wa|abac|ac(er|oo|s-)|ai(ko|rn)|al(av|ca|co)|amoi|an(ex|ny|yw)|aptu|ar(ch|go)|as(te|us)|attw|au(di|-m|r |s )|avan|be(ck|ll|nq)|bi(lb|rd)|bl(ac|az)|br(e|v)w|bumb|bw-(n|u)|c55/|capi|ccwa|cdm-|cell|chtm|cldc|cmd-|co(mp|nd)|craw|da(it|ll|ng)|dbte|dc-s|devi|dica|dmob|do(c|p)o|ds(12|-d)|el(49|ai)|em(l2|ul)|er(ic|k0)|esl8|ez([4-7]0|os|wa|ze)|fetc|fly(-|_)|g1 u|g560|gene|gf-5|g-mo|go(.w|od)|gr(ad|un)|haie|hcit|hd-(m|p|t)|hei-|hi(pt|ta)|hp( i|ip)|hs-c|ht(c(-| |_|a|g|p|s|t)|tp)|hu(aw|tc)|i-(20|go|ma)|i230|iac( |-|/)|ibro|idea|ig01|ikom|im1k|inno|ipaq|iris|ja(t|v)a|jbro|jemu|jigs|kddi|keji|kgt( |/)|klon|kpt |kwc-|kyo(c|k)|le(no|xi)|lg( g|/(k|l|u)|50|54|e-|e/|-[a-w])|libw|lynx|m1-w|m3ga|m50/|ma(te|ui|xo)|mc(01|21|ca)|m-cr|me(di|rc|ri)|mi(o8|oa|ts)|mmef|mo(01|02|bi|de|do|t(-| |o|v)|zz)|mt(50|p1|v )|mwbp|mywa|n10[0-2]|n20[2-3]|n30(0|2)|n50(0|2|5)|n7(0(0|1)|10)|ne((c|m)-|on|tf|wf|wg|wt)|nok(6|i)|nzph|o2im|op(ti|wv)|oran|owg1|p800|pan(a|d|t)|pdxg|pg(13|-([1-8]|c))|phil|pire|pl(ay|uc)|pn-2|po(ck|rt|se)|prox|psio|pt-g|qa-a|qc(07|12|21|32|60|-[2-7]|i-)|qtek|r380|r600|raks|rim9|ro(ve|zo)|s55/|sa(ge|ma|mm|ms|ny|va)|sc(01|h-|oo|p-)|sdk/|se(c(-|0|1)|47|mc|nd|ri)|sgh-|shar|sie(-|m)|sk-0|sl(45|id)|sm(al|ar|b3|it|t5)|so(ft|ny)|sp(01|h-|v-|v )|sy(01|mb)|t2(18|50)|t6(00|10|18)|ta(gt|lk)|tcl-|tdg-|tel(i|m)|tim-|t-mo|to(pl|sh)|ts(70|m-|m3|m5)|tx-9|up(.b|g1|si)|utst|v400|v750|veri|vi(rg|te)|vk(40|5[0-3]|-v)|vm40|voda|vulc|vx(52|53|60|61|70|80|81|83|85|98)|w3c(-| )|webc|whit|wi(g |nc|nw)|wmlb|wonu|x700|xda(-|2|g)|yas-|your|zeto|zte-/i.test(a.substr(0,4))})(navigator.userAgent||navigator.vendor||window.opera);

    **Example Usage:**

    if(jQuery.browser.mobile)
    {
    console.log(‘You are using a mobile device!’);
    }
    else
    {
    console.log(‘You are not using a mobile device!’);
    }

    **Detect iPad**

    var isiPad = /ipad/i.test(navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase());
    if (isiPad)
    {

    }

    var isiPhone = /iphone/i.test(navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase());
    if (isiPhone)
    {

    }

    if (isiPod)
    {

    }

    **Detect iDevice**

    var isiDevice = /ipad|iphone|ipod/i.test(navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase());

    if (isiDevice)
    {

    }

    **Detect Andriod**

    var isAndroid = /android/i.test(navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase());

    if (isAndroid)
    {

    }

    **Detect Blackberry**

    var isBlackBerry = /blackberry/i.test(navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase());

    if (isBlackBerry)
    {

    }

    if (isWebOS)
    {

    }

    if (isWindowsPhone)
    {

    }

    If you don’t need to separate the handling of the device I prefer using this one line:

    function isMobile() { return (‘ontouchstart’ in document.documentElement);}

    Note:
    jQuery.browser is deprecated since v1.3 and removed in v1.9

    Hi,

    You can use this one also.

    if( /Android|webOS|iPhone|iPad|iPod|BlackBerry/i.test(navigator.userAgent) ) {
    // some code..
    }

    @rahuldsg
    thanks so much. I used

    if( /Android|webOS|iPhone|iPad|iPod|BlackBerry/i.test(navigator.userAgent) ) {
    // some code..
    }

    And it works great!!!
