After receiving complaints from developers, Apple has temporarily stopped showing gambling-related and a few other categories’ adverts on App Store product pages. According to The Verge, the tech giant has not said how long the delay will last or whether it will change its policy in light of how the initial release has gone.
It is also unknown which other ad categories have been halted. There are limitations on where apps connected to gambling, drinking, dating, and the pharmaceutical and medical industries can be advertised, according to the company’s rules for App Store advertising.
According to the study, the website only mentions that gambling applications are “prohibited or limited in some nations and regions,” but it makes no mention of the target market for these applications. The limitations generally pertain to laws rather than to things that are offensive or might be harmful.
The business recently declared that it would increase the number of app-related adverts in the App Store. The tech giant said that additional adverts were coming to the App Store in all countries but China in an email to developers. The Today tab of the main App Store and the “You Might Also Like” section at the bottom of each listing for a specific app would start to feature app-related advertising.
