Search Ads is the Apple Inc. iOS app promotion platform for app developers to drive traffic for their apps via search.

The platform features two plans: Basic and Advanced.

With the Basic plan, currently available only for the US market, developers can set their app ad campaigns with a specific CPI they want to stick to and let it run automatically with minimal management on their part.

The minimum budget for the Basic plan is $5,000 per app per month.

The Advanced plan implies developers need to set up keywords they target and audiences they need to reach, set bids and budgets they plan to spend and pay only when mobile users tap on their ads.
