Apple’s new iOS14 privacy features will impact how advertisers and agencies receive and process data and conversion events, from partners such as Facebook.

What does the new policy entail? 

  • Apps will be required to ask users for permission to track them across apps and websites owned by other companies.
  • Until now, users have been automatically opted in, with an option to opt out afterwards. With the new iOS14 release, users will see a pop-up message when they open an app for the first time, allowing them to revoke or grant tracking permissions
  • Unless the user opts in tracking via the prompt, Apple’s policy will prohibit the app to collect and share certain user data. As a result, ads personalization and performance reporting may be limited for both app and web conversion events.
