More locations in the App store will reportedly begin to host advertisements from Apple.These advertisements will stand out and have the word “Ad” inscribed on them.
Apple has been displaying advertisements on the App Store, whether you’ve noticed it or not.However, up until this point, the adverts have only appeared in the search tab and search results. However, this appears to be changing as Apple is reportedly showing more advertisements in other parts of the App Store.
Apple : You will now see more ads in the App Store on iPhone
Several sources claim that Apple-company will begin displaying more advertisements in the App Store.According to reports, two new ad locations have been chosen and will show on the Today tab and individual App Store sites.These adverts will be clearly visible, just like the ones in the search bar and search results.
An advertisement will be marked with the word “Ad” and highlighted in a light blue colour.Ads appear directly on the Today tab, but they appear on individual sites beneath the “You Might Also Like” area.
The best part is that you won’t see any ads that the ad buyer wishes to display; instead, you’ll only see relevant ads from pages that have been approved by the App Store.So, ideally, less spam and more relevant ads.
Apple told MacRumors, 9to5Mac and AppleInsider that “Apple Search Ads provides opportunity for developers of all sizes to build their business”.
These new ad placements are “based upon the same foundation as our existing advertising services, and, like our other advertising offerings, they will adhere to the same stringent privacy rules and only feature content from apps’ approved App Store pages”.
Apple has not yet begun displaying these extra advertisements in the App Store.The business intends to launch testing of the new advertising soon.They should show up in the upcoming weeks.
As you may recall, Apple began running advertisements in the App Store in 2016.Apple appears to be trying to extract more money under the guise of individualised recommendations with the new ad placements.
