      Description

      Right now the docs for Ti.Platform.id are vague. Android "might" be UDID (or not?), iOS previously was something else but not anymore.

      Overall, it is not very clear what exactly the id is, which is a unique identifier after all, but how unique is it? Can it change? It needs to be a more accurate description.

      Another thing that might need adding is a note this ID shouldn't be used for uniquely identifying users as their authentication, and the developer should expect this to change at some point, even if it isn't. A recent issue TIMOB-27175 popped up surrounding this topic.
