Google Proposes Disabling iOS Security To Let Ads Through
Google has a workaround to make sure developers can still deliver ads in iOS applications, but it prevents Apple’s new security tools from working.By Evan Thomas | August 29, 2015
Google is giving iOS developers the option to disable new security features in iOS 9, so its ad network doesn't get interrupted.
With iOS 9, Apple debuted Application Transport Security, or ATS. It’s HTTPS for apps, basically. Apple has it on by default. (Video via Apple)
But Google says apps that don’t comply with ATS will cause errors and warnings when they try to communicate on unsecured connections.
