System Services Memory Screenshot             System Services Disk Screenshot

This is a singleton class to gather all available information about a device. It gives you over 75 methods to determine everything about a device, including:

  • Hardware & Network Information
  • Battery Usage
  • Accelerometer Data
  • Disk Usage
  • Running Processes
  • Memory Usage
  • And a complete UDID replacement based on unchanging device information.


Version License Platform
