How to prevent user install mobile app on iPad mini?

Hi all,

I would like to ask how to prevent user install the mobile app in their iPad mini.

There are some policy in our company, they can install on iPad or iPad pro, but it is not allow the mobile app developed by Outsystems install on their iPad mini

Anyone know how to block the user to install on iPad mini? Where is the setting to do this function?

many thanks~

Hi,

I think it is not possible, I was looking for and the only possible limitation I found was this:


Values for the UIDeviceFamily key

Value
Description
1
(Default) The app runs on iPhone and iPod touch devices.
2
The app runs on iPad devices.

Thank you for your reply. Can I detect the device type (e.g. iPad Pro/ iPad mini) and to popup a windows to warning the user he can not use this app on iPad mini?

Is there any outsystems function can check the device type? If yes, I can do some function to prevent user use this app

Thanks
