CI Status

The device sensor provides device manufacturer, model, operating system version and other information. The information is provided by UIDevice.


iOS 10 or later


com.aware.ios.sensor.device is available through CocoaPods.

  1. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

    pod 'com.awareframework.ios.sensor.device'
  2. Import com.awareframework.ios.sensor.device library into your source code.
    import com_awareframework_ios_sensor_device

Public functions


  • init(config:DeviceSensor.Config?) : Initializes the device sensor with the optional configuration.
  • start(): Starts the device sensor with the optional configuration.
  • stop(): Stops the service.


Class to hold the configuration of the sensor.


  • sensorObserver: DeviceObserver?: Callback for live data updates.
  • enabled: Boolean Sensor is enabled or not. (default = false)
  • debug: Boolean enable/disable logging to Logcat. (default = false)
  • label: String Label for the data. (default = "")
  • deviceId: String Id of the device that will be associated with the events and the sensor. (default = "")
  • dbEncryptionKey Encryption key for the database. (default = null)
  • dbType: Engine Which db engine to use for saving data. (default = Engine.DatabaseType.REALM)
  • dbPath: String Path of the database. (default = "aware_device")
  • dbHost: String Host for syncing the database. (default = null)
