>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Plugin Device
>         Environment: iOS

> The UUID used in Cordova device plugin is currently just generating a new UUID and saving
to preferences. This can be improved by using iOS identifierForVendor which has been in use
since at least iOS 6 (maybe earlier).
> This means the UUID will be the same across multiple apps from the same vendor. 
> I have made the adjustments in this pull request:
> This should be backwards compatible as we still check the NSUserDefaults before using
identifierForVendor so previous installs will not be affected.
