iOS 14.5 : What we learned one month after its launch

Published on 28 May 2021 | Categorized in

Addict Mobile summarizes for you the important things to know about iOS 14.5 a month after its launch.


iOS 14.5 Adoption Rate:


– The evolution of the adoption rate is slower than expected.


– One month later, the adoption rate is 20% in France, 18% in US/UK and 26% in Germany.


– The impact is currently quite low on campaigns but is starting to be more visible.


– With the release of iOS 14.6 on May 24, adoption should become more widespread because Apple has corrected the few problems that occurred at the start and will send notifications to push people to update to the newest version.



iOS 14.5 Opt-in percentage :


– You have to pay attention to the different rates given and the calculation methodology.


– About 25% of users who see the pop-ups accept them.


– We should expect about 10-15% of available IDFA at best (Facebook has announced that on some of these tests they manage to have 50% opt-in).


– The rate of available IDFA is lower than the opt-in rate because it requires the user to give consent on the source app and on the advertiser’s app.



Pre-prompt or pop-up message library

Here are a few websites where you can find examples of messages to put before or even after the pop-up : 

– ATT prompts

– Air Table



Post-impression is back


– Post- impression was made impossible with SKAdNetwork 2.0.


– Version 2.2 allows again to have post-print attribution.


– The big difference compared to before is that the ad will have to be visible for 3 seconds on the screen.


– So, we will have some post -impression but in lesser proportion than before.


Adapted sources


– All the sources allow to launch campaigns dedicated to SKAdNetwork.


– Most of the big sources completely support the SKAdNetwork reporting (installs + events post-installs).


– Limited campaigns/ad sets live at the same time for an iOS app:


        – Facebook: 9 campaigns and 5 ad sets per optimization (managed by the same ad account).

       – Snapchat: 10 ad sets.

       – Google: 8 campaigns

       – TikTok: 11 campaigns, maximum 1 ad set per campaign.


Privacy Threshold


– There is a threshold under which no event postback is sent to the sources.


– According to initial information, this threshold is permanently calculated on the basis of an Apple Campaign ID.


– When an install takes place, the SKAdNetwork checks if the threshold is reached or not to determine if the postback will be sent once the user has completed his last event.


– In order to be above this threshold, there must be a constant flow of installs on a campaign.


Probabilistic Model


– Some tracking tools offer probabilistic model that allow installs to be attributed based on data points at the time of print, click and install.


– So far, no app that incorporates the latest versions of these SDKs have been rejected by Apple so it seems to be in line with their rules.


– This would allow to have data with a similar level of granularity as before with iOS 14.5.


Adding LATs to the source audience databases


– Some sources that did not target LATs in the past seem to have included them in their audiences when iOS 14.5 was released.


– Depending on your tracking tool, you may not be able to attribute these users. To find out if this is the case check to see if your install rate is decreasing and at the same time the organic share is increasing.

Understand the SKAdNetwork data to maintain the performance level of your UA campaigns

Since May 2021 (iOS 14.5), Apple has implemented the ATT, which limits the feedback of data for advertising campaigns. Apple’s aim is to promote the protection of user data. The problem for the mobile industry: acquisition campaign data is no longer fed back as minutely and no longer allows for the reading performances in the same way within tracking tools. As a reminder, if the user opts in on the consent pop-up, then we can recover the IDFA and use deterministic attribution as a basis. The SKAdNetwork is the allocation solution offered by Apple. It serves as a back-up when the data is not received in the event users don’t opt in. Up to 80% less IDFA on IOS According to Appsflyer, 40 to 50% of people give their consent via the pop-up. This does not mean that the IDFA is fed back, because the user must also have agreed on the distribution platforms (such as Facebook, TikTok, Snapchat, etc.). In the end, we find ourselves with only 20 to 30% of the IDFA fed back, which is critical for the results to be read correctly. As the iOS paid campaign data is now limited, there is a real challenge, […]

Dating apps: What are the User Acquisition constraints?

Dating apps need acquisition to support their growth, revenue, and number of active users. Nevertheless, they are subject to constraints that are specific to this vertical. Choosing a strategy   Before launching your campaigns, you need to think about the overall strategy for your app and your objectives: – Gender distribution: Separate by gender and tailored content to make sure you can control the investment and, therefore, the recruitment needs for each gender. – Objectives by gender and, therefore, adapted tracking: Make sure that the tracking on your MMP has been correctly tagged so you can track your performance in the best possible way, even if the events being tracked are different. – Objectives by country: it is also important to analyze app awareness in each country and for each gender as this will particularly affect the types of campaigns launched and the distribution of investments. – Investments according to seasonality: Dating apps are particularly affected by seasonality (vacations, back to school, weekends, Valentine’s Day, etc.). You need to correctly analyze the top recruitment periods for the app to know how to distribute the annual budget and not lose pockets of profitability. Choosing distribution sources The inventory of acquisition sources […]
