For some reason my Device Type keeps being recorded as an OS (Linux, Windows). Do you guys perhaps have any idea why that would happen?
I read through the existing questions and couldn’t find a related one...

Would you be able to give us more info about this?
Which method are you using to collect the data? is it one of our SDKs? if yes - which one? Can you please update it to the latest version and see if the OS is collected properly now?
Are you collecting this data through a third party service and then send to Amplitude? If yes - which one?
How do you know the OS is collected incorrectly? Can you give us a few examples?
@feik I hope all is well. Closing the loop here. Were you able to make progress? Keep us posted if you need additional help.
Thanks for replying
@Zhenia Semenina and @Jeremie Gluckman.
Sorry for being absent but I will supply all the relevant info now to give you more context of the problem...
Here are some details:
I use the Web SDK to collect the data via an Angular site (Typescript).
The device type is being recorded as Windows or Linux (but sometimes as Apple iPhone). I was expecting this to be maybe mobile, desktop or tablet.
And the OS is captured as browser versions which doesn’t feel right. I was expecting those to be Linux or Windows.
Here’s an example:
One thing that might influence this is the fact that we record these events via a VPN. I kinda doubt it’s relevant, but I’m just putting it out there.
@Jeremie Gluckman @Zhenia Semenina ? Or is this correct as is?
