UIDevice extensions that fill in the missing pieces.

Whats this library about?

UIDeviceComplete is an iOS library intended to be a collection of extensions to UIDevice
that provides functionality that UIDevice currently lacks like determining which iOS device
you have (i.e iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPhone 7 etc) or determining the screen size of the device
in inches.


  • [x] Detect specific device like iPhone 7, iPhone SE or iPad Pro
  • [x] Get screen size of device in inches
  • [x] Get iOS Device family (iPod, iPhone or iPad)

Dont see a feature you need?

Feel free to open an Issue requesting the feature you want or send over a pull request!


All of the extensions are called off of the dc variable which stands for ([UI]DeviceComplete) object that this
library extends onto UIDevice that way native methods of UIDevice and methods of this library can
easily be seen, also lowering the possibility of naming conflicts.

Getting common device name

UIDevice.current.dc.commonDeviceName // iPad Pro (12.9 inch, Wi-Fi+LTE)

Detecting iOS Device models

let device = UIDevice.current.dc.deviceModel

switch device {
    case .iPhoneX:
        print("So hows that iPhone X notch thing working out? Right...")
    case .iPhone6Plus, .iPhone7Plus:
        print("Lots of screen realestate eh?")
    case .iPhoneSE, .iPhone5, iPhone5S:
        print("Less iPhone is more iPhone...")
    case .iPadPro:
        print("Not sure what this is...")

Detecting iOS Device Screen Size (Inches)

Screen size can be be queried with the following computed property returning a simple Double
that represents the screen size in inches:

let screenSize: Double = UIDevice.current.dc.screenSize.sizeInches

if screenSize <= 4.0 {
    print("Modest screen size; not so modest price tag")
} else if screenSize >= 5.5 {
    print("Plus is always a plus")
} else {
    print("Chances are this is an iPad or an iPhone (Texas Edition).")

Detecting iOS Device Family

If the type of device family is all you are after i.e iPhone or iPad and the specific model
is not important then DeviceFamily might be what you need.

let deviceFamily = UIDevice.current.dc.deviceFamily

switch deviceFamily {
    case .iPhone:
        print("...phone home?")
    case .iPad:
        print("when it comes to screen size; more is more")
    case .iPod:
        print("Why not?")
        print("No family...")
