Apple’s Attempt To Takeover The Ad Industry



Apple is rolling out a new feature in their iOS 13 - called “Sign in With Apple.” This is going to allow iOS users to quickly create accounts and sign into new apps.

Many apps today offer “sign in with Google” or “sign in with Facebook” features already, but with Apple’s new sign in feature, the user’s identity will be anonymized and information like their names and email addresses won’t be passed on to the app developer. Also, unlike Facebook and Google sign ins, which are optional features, Apple will force all developers to use “Sign in With Apple.”

For consumers, this could be great - Apple promises they’ll get less spam and have more privacy over their data. For app developers who want to build an owned audience of users, it’s not such good news - they’ll have less options for getting email addresses, segmenting and creating lookalike audiences to target. 

Of course, Apple could come out to be the big winner in all this because as they potentially weaken the efficacy of the other platforms, more advertisers may decide to advertise with Apple Ads.

Let’s see what happens and if users take the bait!
