Support » Plugin: WP Mobile Detect » Does not work on In-App iOS browser

  • The [phone] shortcode does not work on In-App browsers; it is completely ignored and no code is injected on phones. Example: The Official iPhone Facebook App. The plugin’s mobile detection does not recognize an in-app browser as being a mobile device.

    Here’s the user-agent string from my iPhone’s Facebook App Browser:

    Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 8_4_1 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/600.1.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile/12H321 [FBAN/FBIOS;FBAV/;FBBV/14316658;FBDV/iPhone7,1;FBMD/iPhone;FBSN/iPhone OS;FBSV/8.4.1;FBSS/3; FBCR/AT&T;FBID/phone;FBLC/en_US;FBOP/5]

    NOTE the “FBAN” which declares the browser is an “in app” browser belonging to Facebook.
