Apple has put privacy at the core of its value proposition for consumers. Its requirements around tracking opt-ins and the availability of the Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA) began being enforced in early with iOS 14.5 in April 2021. This change impacts place across all Apple hardware — Macs, Apple TVs, Apple Watches, and most salient for the massive growth of mobile usage over the past decade, iPhones and iPads.
This page contains all of AdColony’s articles, FAQs, Q&As, infographics, features, interviews, and best practices around Apple’s coming changes. These run the gamut from high concept explanations for strategists and brand planners, to technical details and code snippets for developers, and everything in between.
