Apple has announced new privacy measures will be put in place in iOS14.
Mobile advertising currently relies on the Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA) to track users across apps and services to tie ad impressions to installs and revenue.
The IDFA is opt-in by default. Apple has historically offered people the chance to opt-out before, with their Limited Ad Tracking feature. In iOS14, IDFA will become opt-out by default. Apps will need to gain explicit consent from users to allow them to be tracked and attributed as they are currently (via the IDFA). Adverts will still be shown to all users, whether opted in or out.
