How to detect iPad and iPad OS version in iOS 13 and Up?

I was able to get iPad detection working by checking for navigator.maxTouchPoints as well as navigator.platform. It’s not perfect (as discussed in the comments below) but it’s the best solution I’ve come across so far so I wanted to share.

const iPad = (userAgent.match(/(iPad)/) /* iOS pre 13 */ || 
  (navigator.platform === 'MacIntel' && navigator.maxTouchPoints > 1) /* iPad OS 13 */);
