Due to significant code changes, iPhone Theme 3.x version due to significant code changes will break backward compatibility with customized previous versions of the extension .



Behavior tab:

Through this tab, you can control how the desktop/mobile switching takes place

  • Display Desktop / Mobile Switcher at Footer - shows/hides the force switch link
titleHow does it work?

Disregarding the behavior model you set for the extension (device auto-detection / force view), you can enable your customers to switch between mobile and desktop view at any time.

For this purpose, the extension employs special switcher links:

  • - this link will force the desktop site view for the duration of the session
  • - this link will force the mobile site view for the duration of the session


  • Mobile Device Detection - allows selecting the default behavior. Three modes are available:
    • Auto (default mode) - the extension will identify the type of the device and deliver the correspondent design package;
    • Force Mobile View - the extension will land all visitors (both cell and tablet) on the mobile view disregarding the device type;
    • Desktop View - the extension will land all visitors (both cell and tablet) on the desktop view disregarding the device type;
  • Auto Detection Tablet Device - defines if tablet users should be redirected to the mobile store view.

Auto Detection Tablet Device setting value is only considered if Mobile Device Detection is set to 'Auto'.

In other cases, tablet users will be either forced to mobile view ('Force Mobile View') or desktop version ('Desktop View') depending on Mobile Device Detection value.




Google Analytics tab:

Since 3.x version, Google Analytics can be used to gather data on how many customers have been redirected to the mobile store view.

To enable Google Analytics:

  • Create Google Analytics Account;
  • Navigate to:  System > Configuration > Sales > Google API > Google Analytics and fill in fields required;
  • Fill in Account Number in the Google Analytics section of the iPhone Theme settings (as per screenshot).




Due to the workflow differences between the mobile and desktop view, and, in some cases, functionality overlaps, there is a number of aheadWorks extension extensions that are not represented in or are purposefully disabled for the mobile site version.
