The lesson

Lesson 34 in the Crash Course Series looks at the impact of Apple’s major privacy change in iOS 14.5, when the free use of its Advertiser ID (IDFA) for everyone ended. IDFA is used to track users across apps on the operating system and measure the performance of ads. The introduction of Apple’s App Tracking Transparency (ATT) framework required users to sign up for tracking, and the early news about opt-in rates was pretty bad. These changes have profound implications for in-app advertising strategies in the Apple ecosystem that were previously underpinned by user-level targeting. While a short-term strategy might be to move to Android, similar privacy measures are expected in this operating system soon.

In this lesson you will learn:

  • How advertisers are currently using IDFA.

  • How the IDFA changes affect advertisers.

  • How Branded Advertisers Should Build Their Post-IDFA Strategy.

  • How performance-driven advertisers should build their Post-IDFA strategy.
