<?php
if(strstr($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'],'iPhone') || strstr($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'],'iPod'))
 {
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href=" " />
}
?>

Open in new window

So that is if it is an iPhone or IF it is a iPad use this CSS

Hi

My advise is to start with get_browser()

For screen resolution i would recommend Javascript not php like:

var screenWidth = window.screen.width,
    screenHeight = window.screen.height;
