Device Make Service

Mobile devices are categorized by make and model, where make is generally the manufacturer of the device (i.e., Apple) and model is generally the specific product (i.e., IPhone). The read-only Device Make Service allows you to see what makes of mobile devices are registered in the AppNexus system. You can use this service to retrieve device make IDs for targeting in mobile campaigns.

To see the device models and mobile carriers that you can target in mobile campaigns, see the Device Model Service and Carrier Service.
