Facebook ad accuses Apple of changing the internet for the worse

Facebook countered that the FTC had previously approved those acquisitions and said that people and small businesses choose to use its free services and advertising because of the value that it provides them.

On Monday, Apple launched iOS 14.3, giving users the ability to see the myriad ways in which apps track you (and for Facebook, that's a lot of ways).

A number of Facebook Inc. ads today criticized Apple Inc. over changes to its upcoming iOS 14 operating system.

Facebook has been feuding with Apple for months on issues ranging from prices for paid apps to privacy rule changes. This happend around the time that Facebook has announced that it will stand with small and medium businesses against Apple in a nationwide ad. "Tracking refers to the act of linking user or device data collected from your app with user or device data collected from other companies' apps, websites, or offline properties for targeted advertising or advertising measurement purposes" it explains.

It's worth mentioning, however, that Apple is also expected to use FaceID along with TouchID in iPhone 13. Back in January, we saw reports that signs of a new Apple TV were present in an iOS 13.4 beta.

Continuing its theme of defending small businesses, Facebook has taken out another full-page newspaper ad claiming that Apple is trying to change the internet for the worse.

While not applicable to Facebook apps, Apple will reduce its App Store revenue cut from 30% to 15% starting next year for developers that generate up to $1 million per year. "Full stop", a Facebook vice president for ads and business products, Dan Levy, told reporters. That development will make "the internet much more expensive" and reduce "high-quality free content", the ad reads. Its head of privacy, Jane Horvath, recently said Apple made the change "because we share your concerns about users being tracked without their consent and the bundling and reselling of data by advertising networks and data brokers".

In a statement to AppleInsider, Apple responded to the attack ads.

The post ends with a call to action urging small businesses to learning more about Apple's iOS 14 policy impact and speaking up. Google has also said that several gamepad sand controllers will be supported. iOS supports Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers using Bluetooth and also the controllers which are specifically designed for iPads and iPhones. Not only are there many other options for small businesses to reach consumers effectively that don't rely on personalized ads and device-level targeting, but Facebook is forgetting its place as a service, not as a platform. "As far as we can see, Apple has another strong motive", said Facebook.
