CSS Media Queries for iPad and iPhones


 
 

Many times We have had to design responsive websites targeting specific devices with CSS media queries, and not just base the break points from the site's content. Because of this, We have ended up with a somewhat large list of CSS media queries for typical devices over the past year or two.

here you can see a detailed list of these media queries to help designers & developers save some time searching.


iPad Media Queries

iPad Media Queries (All generations - including iPad mini)

Thanks to Apple's work in creating a consistent experience for users, and easy time for developers, all 5 different iP (iP 1-5 and iPad mini) can be targeted with just one CSS media query. The next few lines of code should work perfect for a responsive design.

and (min-device-width : 768px) 
and (max-device-width : 1024px)  { /* STYLES GO HERE */}
