As a Quality Manager at M2mobi I look into Google Analytics daily, creating overviews and getting to know our users better and better. But i'm missing

the device names when viewing my Apple users.


Could someone explain why Google is not showing us those device names like iPhone 5s or 6s?

I can confirm that this is not just you it is a universal GA annoyance - i do not know why
apparently though you can get more detail form the logs.
I can see the machine model being sent in the GA debug logs:
"&dm" = "iPhone7,2";

just one of those things but would be great to get a good answer to this and better to have it work due to the high value and volume of iphone and ipad traffic.


If you liked my answer best please 'mark as best answer' if I was helpful but not the best please 'star'
- if I have not answered your question fully then please let me know by reply.
