Change User Agent in iOS

Sometimes, different User Agents will show different content in the WebView.
in order to cater your html content, you will need to change UIWebView’s user agent.

Add the below code in AppDelegate.m

 + (void)initialize {

// Set user agent (the only problem is that we can’t modify the User-Agent later in the program)

NSDictionary *dictionnary = [[NSDictionary alloc] initWithObjectsAndKeys:@”Your User Agent”, @”UserAgent”, nil];

[[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults] registerDefaults:dictionnary];


Don’t forget to fill in “Your User Agent”.
For example, my user agent is

Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; CPU OS 7_1 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/537.51.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/7.0 Mobile/11D167 Safari/9537.53

Find your own user agent from WhatsMyUserAgent
