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.
According to what Apple shared on Tuesday, iAds have recently become available in Russia and Switzerland with several new features like full-screen banners and pre-roll video. These features will allow the ad makers to earn more, so I guess adding them is a huge step forward.
Apple on Monday officially released iOS 7.1. The update contains a number of new features like CarPlay, for instance, serious security improvements as well as Touch ID and Siri enhancements. This update comes nearly 6 months after the original iOS 7 release last fall.
You probably know how the video ads on iOS look like: these are small banners placed on the bottom of the screen. To see the ad, one has to tap on the banner. Pretty simple and quite effective mechanism, I must admit.

Yesterday, Tim Cook started redirecting customers’ e-mails to Eddy Cue, Apple's vice president for Internet services. Cook confirmed 9to5Mac that Cue was officially promoted to a senior vise president position.
From an internal Apple email sent by Tim Cook:
It is my pleasure to announce the promotion of Eddy Cue to Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services. Eddy will report to me and will serve on Apple’s executive management team.
Eddy oversees Apple’s industry-leading content stores including the iTunes Store, the revolutionary App Store and the iBookstore, as well as iAd and Apple’s innovative iCloud services. He is a 22-year Apple veteran and leads a large organization of amazing people. He played a major role in creating the Apple online store in 1998, the iTunes Music Store in 2003 and the App Store in 2008.
Cue's promotion may be the first move in a reshuffling of Apple's leadership. The position of Chief Operating Officer is now vacant. Apple’s COO was Tim Cook until his ascension to the CEO position. And soon a position of a senior vice president for retail will be vacant as he takes the CEO position at J.C. Penney.

Apple already leased a 10,000 square-foot chunk of the Kaufman building back in January for the iAd group, and now it is taking a bigger chunk of the building for its first executive office in NYC.
Apple will use the space to launch new business projects. The office will look and feel like the retail stores with an all-white lobby, sleek elevators and LED lights.
