Tracking iPhone orientation in Google Analytics can help you understand how users are interacting with your website or app on different devices. Here are the steps to track iPhone orientation in Google Analytics:

  1. Create a new custom dimension in Google Analytics. Go to your Google Analytics account and navigate to the "Admin" section. Under "Property", click "Custom Definitions" and then "Custom Dimensions." Click "New Custom Dimension" and give it a name like "Device Orientation."
  2. Install a JavaScript library like "ScreenOrientation.js" on your website or app. This library detects the orientation of the device and stores the value in a custom dimension that you created earlier.
  3. Modify your Google Analytics tracking code to include the custom dimension. You'll need to add a line of code to send the orientation value to Google Analytics along with other tracking data. Here's an example of what the code might look like:
1
ga('send', 'event', 'Screen Orientation', window.screen.orientation.angle.toString(), {'dimension1': 'Device Orientation'});


  1. Verify that your data is being tracked correctly. You can check if the custom dimension is being populated by going to the "Custom Reports" section in Google Analytics and creating a new report that includes the "Device Orientation" dimension.


With these steps, you should be able to track iPhone orientation in Google Analytics and gain insights into how users are interacting with your website or app in different device orientations.
