iOS 14

This page and our documentation will be continually updated as information is available.

Our most recent SDK, 5.13.1, has been tested for compatibility with iOS 14 and certified with iOS 14 supported ad networks. The recommendation is to update to 5.14.0 once released.

To help publishers navigate the upcoming changes due to iOS 14, we plan to release a new version of the MoPub SDK that will be iOS-14-compatible, including support for SKAdNetwork, Apple’s framework for on-device mobile install attribution.

We’ve outlined some of the important actions publishers need to take when upgrading to iOS 14 for MoPub compatibility.

iOS 14 Actions

Update MoPub SDK to the iOS 14 supported version

  • MoPub plans to release a new version of the MoPub SDK that will be iOS-14-compatible, including support for SKAdNetwork, Apple’s framework for on-device mobile install attribution. It’s expected to be available soon after Apple releases its iOS Golden Master. For reference, previous Golden Masters have historically shipped in mid-September.

Update supported network SDKs and adapters to their iOS-14-compatible versions

  • MoPub plans to certify iOS-14-compatible SDK networks and adapters as they are released by their respective networks.

Integrate a comprehensive list of SKAdNetwork IDs into Info.plist

  • Per Apple’s SKAdNetwork documentation, MoPub will publish a list of the SKAdNetwork IDs of our supported partners., Publishers will need to include these IDs in their app’s Info.plist in order for SKAdNetwork to work with these partners.
  • Work with your other ad partners to understand whether they will need SKAdNetwork support, and append their IDs to the SKAdNetworkItems list.
  • Consider being as comprehensive as possible at the start because App Store review is required for adding new partners.

Add support for Apple’s AppTrackingTransparency framework

  • The publisher is in control of when and where the Apple’s AppTrackingTransparency framework displays a tracking permission alert.
