Orientation for resolutions?


I’m looking at visitor resolutions, and see many “iOS / Mobile Safari / 768x1024”, but no “iOS / Mobile Safari / 1024x768”. What does that mean?

Does Piwik not catch orientation changes? Or maybe just not report them? Do these users never ever change orientation?

I would like to know how my visitors prefer to use my website – landscape or portrait.


Piwik only tracks the value of screen.width and screen.height.

You’ll need to do some testing, but I think this always reports the device size.

Right. So why aren’t there any “iOS / Mobile Safari / 1024x768”?

Maybe the data from the browser can’t really be trusted, but that seems strange. As I see it, somewhere between a portrait mode Ipad and my Piwik stats, some information is lost.
