What is the user agent for the Apple iPad?

Posted on March 29, 2010 by Chris Duke

If you are a web developer and want to code Apple iPad-specific pages, then you’ll need to know the user agent for two reasons:

1. To be able to code your scripts to look for it

2. To change your user-agent in your browser/client to make HTTP requests

As of the pre-release Apple iPad, it is:

Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; U; CPU OS 3_2 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/531.21.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0.4 Mobile/7B367 Safari/531.21.10
