You can't get that IDFA via javascript. What you need to do is pull that from the app itself and push the ID to the script from the app.

[[ASIdentifierManager sharedManager] advertisingIdentifier]

Open in new window


Is what pulls the IDFA. What I'd do is get that, and the page which has the JScript on it, I'd have a querystring like this:

https://api.mysite.com/api/theJSPage.php?DeviceIDFA=123123123123

There's no other way to do it.

something to the effect of:

    NSString *myIDFA = [[ASIdentifierManager sharedManager] advertisingIdentifier];
    NSString *urlString = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"https://api.mysite.com/api/theJSPage.php?DeviceIDFA=%@",myIDFA] 
    NSURL *websiteUrl = [NSURL URLWithString:urlString];
    NSURLRequest *urlRequest = [NSURLRequest requestWithURL:websiteUrl];
    [myWebView loadRequest:urlRequest];

Open in new window
