David Walsh's Blog:
iPad Detection Using JavaScript or PHP
April 13, 2010 @ 12:22:22

David Walsh has a new post to his blog today with some code snippets that can help you detect iPad users when they come to your site.

The hottest device out there right now seems to be the iPad. iPad this, iPad that, iPod your mom. I'm underwhelmed with the device but that doesn't mean I shouldn't try to account for such devices on the websites I create.

He includes three ways to get the job done by matching against the User Agent sent by the browser - Javascript, PHP and with an .htaccess file for an Apache server. As one commenter points out, though, you need to be sure if you already have a redirect on the word "mobile", the iPad's User Agent contains that too.
