Property lists named after the model number of the device they should apply to, divided in 2 or 3 sections:

  • capabilities for device names and available hardware & features;
  • iconState for the default application sorting (Settings>General>Reset>Reset Home Screen Layout) while the rest are sorted alphabetically, making it possible to make some applications "sticky";
  • ??? for importing another model definition file as a template; this applies recursively.

The model definition file seems to be missing in iOS 7, so any iDevices with iOS 7 as an initial firmware don't have this.
