    Question How to determine Phone Model on http-server

    I have a script on my http-server, that determines the model of the phone that sends http-requests (POST, for example). I need it to determine what to answer (the answer has to depend on the phone model)
    For many years i have been using User-Agent field to solve my task. I know that user-agent can be redetermine in general (by network provider for example).
    My question is: "How to determine the http-request sender's phone model without user-agent"?

    HTTPS could be a workaround for the case when a 3rd party would modify the header.

    Not really, HTTP is not invented for providing reliable identification of anything.
