    Device Information for react-native


    First you need to install react-native-device-info:

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

    Installation (iOS)

    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)

    Installation (Android)

    • Add Gradle configuration changes

    Run react-native link react-native-device-info in your project root.

    On React Native 0.18+:

    import com.learnium.RNDeviceInfo.RNDeviceInfo;  // <--- import 
    public class MainActivity extends ReactActivity {
       * A list of packages used by the app. If the app uses additional views
       * or modules besides the default ones, add more packages here.
        protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
          return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
            new RNDeviceInfo(), // <------ add here 
            new MainReactPackage());

    (Thanks to @chirag04 for writing the instructions)

    • If you want to get the device name in Android add this to your AndroidManifest.xml (optional)
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH"/>

    Release Notes

    • 0.9.1 adds support for the iPhone SE and new iPad Pro
    • 0.9.0 adds support for device country and changes the iOS device name to match Apple branding
    • 0.8.4 don't use destructuring
    • 0.8.3 removes the default bluetooth permission
    • 0.8.2 change deployment target to iOS 8
    • 0.8.1 removes unnecessary peerDependencies
    • 0.8.0 tweaks how device locale works on Android. If it's available it will use the toLanguageTag that is more inline with iOS. (See #14)
    • 0.7.0 adds two new parameters, Device Locale and User Agent.
    • 0.5.0 adds a new parameter; Device Id. On iOS this is the hardware string for the current device (e.g. "iPhone7,2"). On Android we use the BOARD field which is the name of the underlying board, e.g. "goldfish". The way that the module gets the device model on iOS has also changed to be based on the Device Id; now instead of getting a generic product family e.g. "iPhone", it will return the specific model e.g. "iPhone 6".


    var DeviceInfo = require('react-native-device-info');
    console.log("Device Unique ID", DeviceInfo.getUniqueID());  // e.g. FCDBD8EF-62FC-4ECB-B2F5-92C9E79AC7F9
    // * note this is IDFV on iOS so it will change if all apps from the current apps vendor have been previously uninstalled
    console.log("Device Manufacturer", DeviceInfo.getManufacturer());  // e.g. Apple
    console.log("Device Model", DeviceInfo.getModel());  // e.g. iPhone 6
    console.log("Device ID", DeviceInfo.getDeviceId());  // e.g. iPhone7,2 / or the board on Android e.g. goldfish
    console.log("Device Name", DeviceInfo.getSystemName());  // e.g. iPhone OS
    console.log("Device Version", DeviceInfo.getSystemVersion());  // e.g. 9.0
    console.log("Bundle Id", DeviceInfo.getBundleId());  // e.g.
    console.log("Build Number", DeviceInfo.getBuildNumber());  // e.g. 89
    console.log("App Version", DeviceInfo.getVersion());  // e.g. 1.1.0
    console.log("App Version (Readable)", DeviceInfo.getReadableVersion());  // e.g.
    console.log("Device Name", DeviceInfo.getDeviceName());  // e.g. Becca's iPhone 6
    console.log("User Agent", DeviceInfo.getUserAgent()); // e.g. Dalvik/2.1.0 (Linux; U; Android 5.1; Google Nexus 4 - 5.1.0 - API 22 - 768x1280 Build/LMY47D)
    console.log("Device Locale", DeviceInfo.getDeviceLocale()); // e.g en-US
    console.log("Device Country", DeviceInfo.getDeviceCountry()); // e.g US
