How to check if your app is running on an iPad or an iPhone

Here’s how we check that:

// if we're an iPad
if ([[UIDevice currentDevice]userInterfaceIdiom] == UIUserInterfaceIdiomPad) {

    // do some iPad or iPad Mini specific stuff
} else {

    // we're on iPhone or iPod Touch

Alternatively you can check the same method for UIUserInterfaceIdiomPhone instead, which is returned when you’re on an iPhone or iPod touch.
