Apple iAd Opt-Out, Will Still Collect Data

By CIOinsight  |  Posted 06-23-2010
Apple updated its privacy policy to let users opt out of its iAd platform, which launches July 1 to help iPhone and iPad developers make money from the 225,000 applications they've lodged in Apple's App Store.

Timed for the launch of the vaunted iPhone 4, iAd lets developers insert advertisements within their applications.

Developers keep 60 percent of the proceeds from ads shown; Apple gets the remaining 40 percent of sales. iAd is Apple's plan to challenge Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and other Internet companies in the market for mobile ads delivered on smartphones and tablet computers.
