iOS 6 User Agent String

Today, I needed to have a look at the User Agent string from a device running iOS 6. A device I have is running iOS 6 beta 4, provides the following header.

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 6_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/536.26 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0 Mobile/10A5376e Safari/8536.25 

As this is a beta, there is the chance it will change, and of course, it might even vary from iPhone to iPhone. However, for anyone needing an example User Agent string, there you go.

If you are looking for gaining access to a device's User-Agent string programmatically, then you should look no further than here, http://cdrussell.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/programmatically-get-user-agent-string.html.
