Unknown iPad on DeviceMetrics

I'm currently coding on an iPad Pro, and running a deviceMetrics().platformName gives me "Unknown iPad" as the iPad's name, is this normal?

    @ShatteredWindow What do you get when you run this.

    function setup()
        for a,b in pairs(d) do
  • PlatformName Unknown iPad
    Platform iPad6, 3
    Hwmodel J127AP

    I have an iPad Air, so I can't say why. Just have to wait for another iPad Pro to run the code and see if they get the same thing.

    You can work out what it is from the platform "iPad 6,3" is the 9.7 inch iPad Pro. See the complete list of codes here:

    platformName is a best guess from the device model. It would be more reliable to use the model (iPad 6,3) instead of platformName
  • Dang, that's annoying

    @ShatteredWindow You could always create your own device table and use the platform value to get the name from your table.

  • I'm currently in the process of doing that

    @ShatteredWindow Here's a version just in case you haven't done yours yet.

    function setup()  
        dev=    -- comma removed from key value of table
