Apple uses the es-xl locale code for specifying Latin American Spanish. When navigating to from an iOS device, the user is redirected to the /es-ES localization of the site instead of a Latin American Spanish localization. This can be jarring to the user, as the language between the two regions is quite distinct.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Open safari or Firefox for iOS
2) Navigate to
3) Note the locale redirect
4) Visit to confirm accept-language header setting as es-xl.

Expected behavior:
Redirect should be done based on correlated region mapping, not alphabetical sorting of available regions assigned to a given language code.
