Apple is dropping support for the iAds App Network. What does that mean to you?
Recently, Apple announced plans to drop support for the iAds advertising network. However it appears that’s not the case — instead, they are dropping support for iAds App Network. Although these sound similar, they are quite different.
The iAds App Network was a feature where you could become an “advertiser” and advertise your apps inside other people’s apps. This app promotion network seems to be what’s closing down. Apple will not be taking new clients for this program, but it appears that you can still use typical iAds in your app.
Depending on how you interpret the announcement and subsequent tech blog posts, you may not be confident in iAds. If this is the case, you may want to consider an alternate monetization method such as the Facebook Audience Network or AppLovin.
