This will only work if people are not spoofing their MAC addresses. If they are, you may either get false positives or false negatives, depending on who is doing what. Right, I understand that -- but my question wasn't whether MAC addresses are a reliable identifier, I'm asking whether I can distinguish Apple products using them. Christian - If they're not a reliable identifier, you can't distinguish Apple products using them, as they can be changed.
So no, apparently you don't understand that. It may be possible most of the time, but if the MAC has been changed, it is no longer possible. I don't strictly know about mac addresses, but tcp fingerprinting en. Christian 95 1 1 gold badge 1 1 silver badge 7 7 bronze badges. This is the closest yet to an answer. We are indeed right now basically monitoring access points that have a lot of people coming through.
A quick comment: your first sentence suggests that the pattern would need to be in the last three octets, which needn't be the case given the host of prefixes Apple has, but later you mention that sorting brings out no pattern either, so you may want to clarify.

You've got free reign to just edit my post to clear this up to your satisfaction. I'll try to find a safe snipped of MAC that I can release showing what I mean and add that later to this post.

Reply two years after asking, it is not feasible relying only on the Mac address. Without remote scans, you can manage your devices by : Running an agent or profile on each OS X and iOS devices to fetch 'sysctl hw.

My apologies, I read the question as you were wanting to distinguish if the MAC address was a Macintosh product. No worries! I realize it's a somewhat unusual question. E1Suave Your read of the question was my understanding also.
I edited the question to clarify the OP's intent. DanielLawson Indeed. It seems to me Apple likely would have an internal use for such a thing and perhaps something similar exists for consumer use. How to realize that in a continuous production? What's MAC Address and what is it identifying? Examples I have no Apple hardware arround me.

For the record, I fully agree that MAC addresses aren't a stable identifier, but in my setting i it simply doesn't matter whether a handful of people have changed them and ii I mainly care about distinguishing ipods from ipads from iphones, so the likelihood of people having changed them on these devices is lower still. Anyway, it sounds like you're in an environment where you can capture a lot of MAC addresses and empirically answer your own question.
If you do, please report back. I wouldn't bet on it. Dennis Wurster Dennis Wurster 1 1 silver badge 5 5 bronze badges. Bingo - this has been my experience with looking over MAC address and Apple product in general.
