Deprecated UIWebView Methods

A method identified as deprecated has been superseded and may become unsupported in the future.

Deprecated in iOS 3.0


A Boolean value indicating whether telephone number detection is on. (Deprecated in iOS 3.0. Use dataDetectorTypes instead.)

@property(nonatomic) BOOL detectsPhoneNumbers

If YES, telephone number detection is on; otherwise, NO. If a webpage contains numbers that can be interpreted as phone numbers, but are not phone numbers, you can turn off telephone number detection by setting this property to NO. The default value is YES on devices that have phone capabilities.

Special Considerations

The functionality provided by this property has been superseded by the dataDetectorTypes property.

  • Available in iOS 2.0 and later.
  • Deprecated in iOS 3.0.
