Installation

Using npm:

npm install --save react-native-device-info

or using yarn:

yarn add react-native-device-info

⚠️ If you are on React Native > 0.47, you must use version 0.11.0 of this library or higher

Linking

Automatic

react-native link react-native-device-info

(or using rnpm for versions of React Native < 0.27)

rnpm link react-native-device-info

Manual

iOS (via Cocoa Pods)

Add the following line to your build targets in your Podfile

pod 'RNDeviceInfo', :path => '../node_modules/react-native-device-info'

Then run pod install

iOS (without Cocoa Pods)

In XCode, in the project navigator:

  • Right click Libraries
  • Add Files to [your project's name]
  • Go to node_modules/react-native-device-info
  • Add the .xcodeproj file

In XCode, in the project navigator, select your project.

  • Add the libRNDeviceInfo.a from the deviceinfo project to your project's Build Phases ➜ Link Binary With Libraries
  • Click .xcodeproj file you added before in the project navigator and go the Build Settings tab. Make sure All is toggled on (instead of Basic).
  • Look for Header Search Paths and make sure it contains both $(SRCROOT)/../react-native/React and $(SRCROOT)/../../React
  • Mark both as recursive (should be OK by default).

Run your project (Cmd+R)

Examples

const apiLevel = DeviceInfo.getAPILevel();
 
// iOS: ?
// Android: 25
// Windows: ?

Notes

See API Levels


getApplicationName()

Examples

const buildNumber = DeviceInfo.getBuildNumber();
 
// iOS: "89"
// Android: 4
// Windows: ?

Notes

There is a type inconsistency: Android return an integer instead of the documented string.


getBundleId()

Examples

const bundleId = DeviceInfo.getBundleId(); // "com.learnium.mobile"

getCarrier()

Gets the carrier name (network operator).

Android Permissions


getFirstInstallTime()

Gets the time at which the app was first installed, in milliseconds.

Examples

const firstInstallTime = DeviceInfo.getFirstInstallTime();
 
// Android: 1517681764528

getFontScale()

Gets the device font scale. The font scale is the ratio of the current system font to the "normal" font size, so if normal text is 10pt and the system font is currently 15pt, the font scale would be 1.5 This can be used to determine if accessability settings has been changed for the device; you may want to re-layout certain views if the font scale is significantly larger ( > 2.0 )

Examples

const fontScale = DeviceInfo.getFontScale(); // 1.2

getFreeDiskStorage()

Gets available storage size, in bytes.

Examples

const freeDiskStorage = DeviceInfo.getFreeDiskStorage();
 
// Android: 17179869184
// iOS: 17179869184

Notes

From developer.android.com:

Return the primary shared/external storage directory.

Note: don't be confused by the word "external" here. This directory can better be thought as media/shared storage. It is a filesystem that can hold a relatively large amount of data and that is shared across all applications (does not enforce permissions). Traditionally this is an SD card, but it may also be implemented as built-in storage in a device that is distinct from the protected internal storage and can be mounted as a filesystem on a computer.


getIPAddress()

Gets the device current IP address.

Examples

DeviceInfo.getIPAddress().then(ip => {
  // "92.168.32.44"
});

Android Permissions

Notes

Support for iOS was added in 0.22.0


getInstallReferrer()

Gets the referrer string upon application installation.

Examples

const referrer = DeviceInfo.getInstallReferrer();

// the result will be "my_install_referrer"

getInstanceID()

Gets the application instance ID.

Examples

const instanceId = DeviceInfo.getInstanceID();
 
// Android: ?

Notes

See https://developers.google.com/instance-id/


getLastUpdateTime()

Gets the time at which the app was last updated, in milliseconds.

Examples

const lastUpdateTime = DeviceInfo.getLastUpdateTime();
 
// Android: 1517681764992

getMACAddress()

Gets the network adapter MAC address.

Examples

DeviceInfo.getMACAddress().then(mac => {
  // "E5:12:D8:E5:69:97"
});

Android Permissions

Notes

iOS: This method always return "02:00:00:00:00:00" as retrieving the MAC address is disabled since iOS 7

const manufacturer = DeviceInfo.getManufacturer();
 
// iOS: "Apple"
// Android: "Google"
// Windows: ?

getMaxMemory()

// Android: "Android"
// Windows: ?

getSystemVersion()

Gets the device OS version.

Notes

  • Since the device setting for PIN/Fingerprint can be modified while the app is still open, this is available via callback instead of as a constant.
  • iOS: Not supported for iOS < 9

isTablet()

Tells if the device is a tablet.

Examples

const isTablet = DeviceInfo.isTablet(); // true

Troubleshooting

When installing or using react-native-device-info, you may encounter the following problems:

[android] - Unable to merge dex / Multiple dex files / Problems with `com.google.android.gms`

react-native-device-info uses com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm to provide [getInstance()][#getinstance]. This can lead to conflicts when building the Android application.

If you're using a different version of com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm in your app, you can define the googlePlayServicesVersion gradle variable in your build.gradle file to tell react-native-device-info what version it should require.

If you're using a different library that conflicts with com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm, you can simply ignore this dependency in your gradle file:

 compile(project(':react-native-device-info')) {
    exclude group: 'com.google.android.gms'
}
[ios] - ld: library not found for -lRNDeviceInfo-tvOS

Seems to be a bug caused by react-native link. You can manually delete libRNDeviceInfo-tvOS.a in Xcode -> [Your iOS build target] -> Build Phrases -> Link Binary with Libraries.

[tests] - Cannot run my test suite when using this library

react-native-device-info contains native code, and needs to be mocked.

Here's how to do it with jest for example:

// in your package.json:
"jest": {
  "setupFiles": [
    "./testenv.js"
  ],


// testenv.js:
jest.mock('react-native-device-info', () => {
  return {
    getModel: jest.fn(),
  };
});

Release Notes

See the CHANGELOG.md.

react-native-web

As a courtesy to developers, this library was made compatible in v0.17.0 with react-native-web by providing an empty polyfill in order to avoid breaking builds.

Only getUserAgent() will return a correct value. All other API methods will return an "empty" value of its documented return type: 0 for numbers, '' for strings, false for booleans.
