Here is something from WebView.h
@abstract Set the user agent.
@discussion Setting this means that the webView should use this
instead of constructing a user-agent string for each URL. Setting
it to nil
causes the webView to construct the user-agent string for each URL
for best results rendering web pages.
@param userAgentString The user agent description
- (void)setCustomUserAgent:(NSString *)userAgentString;
There are a couple other user agent related APIs, too.
