The company recently announced its Creative Sets which let app developers tap into additional App Store asses to create Creative Set ads by adding keywords and screenshots as well as audience details.
The announcement also follows news that Apple is looking to return to the mobile ad industry through the launch of its own mobile ad network.
Furthermore, the company is in a good position to provide context-based ad solutions which do not infringe on recent privacy rule updates. Indeed, it may be able to offer ads considered to be intrusive compared to Google and Facebook.
