I had a bit of a bug with this website when I was creating it – basically we wanted to disable our homepage video on mobile devices because of bandwidth issues and wanting to keep the site as fast as possible. However, we still wanted to show the video on small desktop screens – which ruled out the use of basic media queries.
I asked the web development community for their thoughts on the matter, and was advised to have a look at this article, by Stephen Gilbert – which outlines the lengths Apple have been going to in order to provide a consistent experience across their devices- with regards to making it easier for developers too.
The Article outlines some queries which target iPhones and iPads across all generations and makes it simple to directly target these devices and their users.
Don’t know what media queries are? We will be releasing an article shortly with some more information on what they are and how they can benefit you.
