Description Prashant Cholachagudda 2015-01-19 06:55:47 UTC
Using sysctlbyname does not return values when a Unified API project deployed to the device. On a simulator we get values back from sysctlbyname method.

Sample Code:
Call to Xamarin.Helpers.Device.GetHardwareVersion method always returns `Unknown` on the device.

Most likely you're missing a few cases in the switch (due to new devices being added since that code was written).

What's the actual value of 'hardwareStr' in the GetHardwareVersion method?
Comment 2 Prashant Cholachagudda 2015-01-19 07:35:53 UTC
I'm sorry, you're right, the code is missing a case for new devices.

`hardwareStr` comes up as `iPhone6.2`
