The last step in this matter is that it is available with iOS 14.5. Application Tracking Transparency ‘ feature.

With this feature, which has been in use in the developer beta for a while, now all applications on iPhones and all websites visited through the browser are used to track actions on the device. must explicitly request permission from the user.

Apple, the steps to be followed in this regard. interface guidelines also updated and made clear expressions that can and cannot be used. At the same time, Apple stated that the apps cannot tell iPhone users that ‘if you do not allow us to track their data, you cannot use our app’.
