Titanium provides platform-identification properties in the Ti.Platform namespace that you can use for conditional branching within your code.

if used Ti.Platform.model its return model values, but it has some mapping to understand which model exactly.!/api/Titanium.Platform-property-model

Following are mapping list :

["iPod5,1": "iPod Touch 5",

"iPad6,7": "iPad Pro (12.9-inch)",
"iPad6,8": "iPad Pro (12.9-inch)",

"AppleTV6,2": "Apple TV 4K",
"AudioAccessory1,1": "HomePod",
"i386": "32 bit Simulator",
"x86_64": "64 bit Simulator"

Reference for this :

We can write code to detect model like :

when running on virtual device or simulator in xcode its return like "iPad8,5 (Simulator)" and when actual device it returned "iPad8,5"

if (Ti.Platform.model === "iPad8,5 (Simulator)" ||
Ti.Platform.model === "iPad8,5"){
return true;
else {
return false;

This property not only related to iOS, its for all type of devices. I have mentioned only iOS specific.
