iAds Are Now Available in 70 New Countries
Apple on Tuesday announced that it has extended iAds support to additional 70 countries, making the advertising network available in 95 countries. The announcement was placed on Apple's official webpage for developers.
As to the countries where the new system has been launched this week, they include those of Europe, Americas, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia.
The aggressive iAd rollout foreshadows Apple's intentions for the branded advertising platform, which has failed to live up to initial expectations. Apple is pressing for more comprehensive placement for its clients, good examples being integration with iTunes Radio and the introduction of full-screen interstitial video ads in August.
Aside from all the other things, people familiar with the matter say that the guys from Cupertino are currently working on integration between Apple Pay and iAds. In particular, insiders claim that Apple plans to add special virtual Buy buttons to the ads. The updated advertising network is expected to debut ahead of this year's holiday shopping season.
