Ad Tracking

iOS 6 introduces the advertising Identifier, a non-permanent, non-personal, device identifier, that apps will give you more control over advertisers’ ability to use tracking methods. you can reset a device’s Advertising Identifier at any time. And if you choose to limit ad tracking, apps are not permitted to use the Advertising Identifier to serve you targeted ads. In the future all apps will be required to use the Advertising Identifier. However, until then you may still receive targeted ads.
