I guess that soon it won't be possible to determine iOS version distribution using User-Agent sniffing. Right? Is there an alternative for the browser to tell the iOS version?&nbsp;


The very point of no longer sending the verison in the user agent is to make it difficult for websites to determine the operating system version.

We already have to deal with enough serious web compatibility problems caused by the rest of the information in the user agent. I'm pleased that the version number is now stable -- that's a huge improvement -- but I won't be happy until Safari and other major browsers start sending fully-randomized UAs, or else a stub or blank UA ("Mozilla/5.0").
