Apple is said to be boosting iPhone monetization by showing ads in the device’s default apps.
According to expert Mark Gurman Bloomberg, By constantly providing accurate information about Apple products based on insider information and expanding iPhone and iPad advertising, Apple will be a way to increase sales in the near future.
Currently, Apple has implemented an advertising model in many of its products, such as B. its Deals, News, and App Store search apps. Some other default apps that may start showing ads in the near future are Maps, Podcasts, and Books.
Apple is testing the feature internally in the Maps app, Gurman said, citing sources. For example, if a user searches for a restaurant or store, the app will show recommendations for the restaurant or store to buy the ad. Also, app ads can appear larger on the App Store home page.

Analysts also say that the iOS App Tracking Transparency (ATT) feature is struggling for many other platforms like Facebook and Snap. This will unknowingly benefit Apple as companies have to think about which channels to use to advertise effectively. In this case, they should contact Apple instead of a third party. According to a report by market research firm Omdia, the company’s advertising revenue will increase by 238 percent by 2021 after the launch of ATT.
