Apple will shut down the iAd App Network for developers on June 30


Apple iAd

iAd is certainly getting a lot of attention recently, but it’s certainly not all good news. The most recent has a sunset date for the iAd App Network.

On Friday, January 15, Apple published a quick post to their official developer news channel that states they’ll be shutting down the iAd App Network for devs on June 30. As of right now, Apple is no longer accepting any new additions to the app network, but for the advertisement campaigns that already exist, they will continue to do so until June 30. Any ad revenue will continue to get earned until that date as well.

“The iAd App Network will be discontinued as of June 30, 2016. Although we are no longer accepting new apps into the network, advertising campaigns may continue to run and you can still earn advertising revenue until June 30. If you’d like to continue promoting your apps through iAd until then, you can create a campaign using iAd Workbench.”

This update from Apple comes on the heels of a report from BuzzFeed recently that said Apple would be stepping back its role from the iAd platform, and let publishers take the reigns.
