Apple While we were al busy getting knickers in twists over section 3.3.1 of the new iPhone developer agreement, Apple hoped to sneak another, possibly more far-reaching change past us. All Things Digital, however, got hold of section 3.3.9, which could effectively kill all third party ad networks - granting an insurmountable advantage to Apple's own iAd network.

Nonsense

The whole premise of the article is nonsense.

Apple is saying you cannot send the device ID to a third party without Apple's permission. That's great! This is a MUST HAVE privacy feature.

Frankly, the thing we should be pissed off at is not that Apple is not sharing our device ID but that it's not letting us opt-out from Apple using it.

Anyway, nothing prevents or limits 3rd party advertising platforms, nothing prevents the advertising platforms from establishing their own ID's through a cross app cookie, like, you know, how it's done on the web.

I hate how OSNews has gone to the Trolls.
