Apple banner ads boost sales
Apple's entry into the ad business may come as a surprise to many, considering its brand image of being premium and privacy-focused. However, the company has quietly grown its own advertising revenue almost tenfold in the last three to four years, with analysts predicting a continued rise to tens of billions of dollars in a few more years. This would make Apple one of the largest ad tech companies in the world.
## How Did Apple Get Into the Ad Business?
Apple initially built its operating systems in a way that allowed advertisers to track users across apps, just like Windows and Android. Each app on an iPhone or an iPad had access to a unique device identifier, or a UDID, a shared ID that allowed advertisers to connect what users did across many apps. Apple banned app access to UDID for ad targeting in 2012 but then introduced an alternative called IDFA, or Identity for Advertisers, a code purpose-built for tracking users across apps. This was initially presented as a privacy feature because it could be reset or hidden, kind of like a cookie, so it wasn't permanent. Apple built IDFA to be on by default, made it available to any app, and intentionally hid the option to turn it off behind multiple layers of confusing settings.
## What Changed?
Apple has always been critical of how others treat privacy, and the company decided to go on an all-out privacy crusade. From around 2018 to today, the company started churning out commercial after commercial, and privacy went from a thing that Apple occasionally mentioned to a core selling point of the brand. The timing was perfect, with Facebook's privacy scandals, fake news election interference, GDPR with all of its cookie banners, etc. Suddenly, people cared about privacy, and Apple painted a clear picture: other tech companies are out for your data and evil, but Apple is fighting for your privacy.
## Apple's Privacy-Focused Alternative
## Apple's Massive Ecosystem
Apple has spent the last four to five years massively expanding its own services ecosystem with Apple Music, TV, News, Arcade, Books, Fitness, Podcasts, Maps, Payments, and more. This walled garden is now absolutely massive for Apple, and it includes the operating system itself as well as system-critical apps like the App Store or iMessage, which competitors will never have access to. This massive ecosystem gives Apple so much data and so much space to put their ads into that they never even have to look at what you do in a third-party app or get your data or place an ad anywhere else. They can build an advertising empire all within their own ecosystem.
## What's Next for Apple?
Apple already does ads in their App Store and in the Apple News app, including for paid subscribers. Credible reports claim that Apple will roll out a lot more of these in the future. Apparently, ads in Apple Maps have already been tested and are coming. Apple Books, Podcasts, and TV could be coming next too. As Teresi, the head of Apple's ad business, has been tasked with expanding the business significantly, how far Apple will go will depend on how much Apple users are willing to tolerate.
Apple's entry into the ad business may seem at odds with the brand image it has cultivated for decades, but it's clear that the company has always been willing to compromise on user privacy to some extent. With its massive ecosystem, better privacy tech, and its ability to anonymize user data, Apple has all the tools it needs to build a huge ad business within its own walled garden while claiming to respect user privacy. How much Apple users are willing to tolerate remains to be seen, but it's clear that Apple is well on its way to becoming one of the largest ad tech companies in the world.
