npm version

Device Information for React Native


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

RN > 0.47 use 0.11 or higher

Automatically link

With React Native 0.27+

react-native link react-native-device-info

With older versions of React Native

You need rnpm (npm install -g rnpm)

rnpm link react-native-device-info

Manually link

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)

  • Open the solution in Visual Studio for your Windows apps
  • right click your in the Explorer and click Add > Existing Project...
  • Navigate to ./<app-name>/node_modules/react-native-device-info/windows/RNDeviceInfo and add RNDeviceInfo.csproj
  • this time right click on your React Native Windows app under your solutions directory and click Add > Reference...
  • check the RNDeviceInfo you just added and press ok
  • open up MainPage.cs for your app and edit the file like so:
+ using RNDeviceInfo;
                return new List<IReactPackage>
                    new MainReactPackage(),
+                   new RNDeviceInfoPackage(),

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. To use, pass a callback function to the returned bridge function in your javascript:

RNDeviceInfo.isPinOrFingerprintSet()(isPinOrFingerprintSet => {
  if (!isPinOrFingerprintSet) {
