More iPhone users are allowing apps to track them
What you need to know
- More users are reportedly opting into app tracking this year.
- A report says that the opt-in rate has risen from around 16% to 25%.
It appears that more people are okay with apps tracking them this year than last.
According to new data from analytics firm Adjust (via 9to5Mac), the number of users on iOS who are opting in to app tracking is up this year when compared to 2021. According to the firm, rates of users opting in increased from around sixteen percent last year to twenty-five percent this year.
The report goes on to say that apps can expect an upward trend for opt-ins from users as some set of users will prefer more personalized experiences and advertising.
Despite the upward trend in opt-ins, Apple's anti-tracking measures are still having a material impact on advertisers. According to a report from earlier this week, Facebook could see a $10 billion impact on its business in 2022.
