  That is fairly vague.  You're working with computers.  Be specific.

  WHAT is in an Access-Request when they login using a desktop?

  WHAT is in an Access-Request when they login using their phone?

  HOW are the two requests different?

  Once you know that, it should be easy to create rules which can
distinguish one from the other.  And then apply different rules to each one.

  You're limited by what is in the Access-Request.  If the only
difference between a desktop and iPhone is a MAC address, too bad.
Computers aren't magic.

  My guess is that the only thing which will really work is MAC address
filtering.  I'd suggest finding a way to make it manageable.
