Get current device information from within the Flutter application.


Import package:device_info/device_info.dart, instantiate DeviceInfoPlugin and use the Android and iOS getters to get platform-specific device information.


import 'package:device_info/device_info.dart';

DeviceInfoPlugin deviceInfo = new DeviceInfoPlugin();
AndroidDeviceInfo androidInfo = await deviceInfo.androidInfo;
print('Running on ${androidInfo.model}');  // e.g. "Moto G (4)"

IosDeviceInfo iosInfo = await deviceInfo.iosInfo;
print('Running on ${iosInfo.utsname.machine}');  // e.g. "iPod7,1"

You will find links to the API docs on the pub page.
