i-Phone,i-Pad Browser Detection of ASP.NET Mobile Website

ASP.NET Mobile Website has support for Mobile Browser detecting User-Agents in Mobile Database (WURFL) or mobile.browser(mobiplex).

i-Pad’s User -Agent Strings are as :

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/7B334b Safari/531.21.10

i-Phone’s User-Agent Strings are as:

HTTP_USER_AGENT=Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/1C25 Safari/419.3

Lets Write some JavaScript Code to redirect the asp.net mobile website to i-Phone/i-Pad specific Website.

write in asp.net_website/mobile/default.aspx:


if ((navigator.userAgent.match(/iPhone/i)) ||

(navigator.userAgent.match(/iPod/i))) {

if (document.cookie.indexOf(“iphone_redirect=false”) == -1) window.location = http://localhost:8922/EMREC/Mobile/i-Phone/Default.aspx/&#8221;;



Next check the mobile website in Windows Phone & i-Phone View & the redirection view from http://website.com/mobile to http://website.com/mobile/i-Phone.
