I know some ads can be annoying but how are people supposed to support themselves now??
Everyone wants everything for free now. But don't DARE ask them for a teaspoon of sugar.
I want my iPhones to all be free. I know they won't be free.
At least they will be hitting me with fewer ads.
Yup... also with the news app, Apple could make a lot more with their advertising business.
I applaud this as the bulk of my surfing via phone is while connected to the data-capped cellular network. Every ad I have to see/download/watch on my smartphone is eating away at the limited data I can already consume. I'll watch your ad, but you need to pay me for the data you just used.

If you have a good product you don't need to depend on ads.

So you make an app and do iAds right? Isn't that what Apple is getting at (besides going for Google's throat)?

To the best of my memory, I have never clicked one of these ads on purpose. They irritate me, and seriously harm the user experience on the site.
I know it's been tried before, but I would much rather pay a yearly fee that results in zero ads on ALL sites from my perspective.
On many of those ads with FORCED re-directs to the App store I do indeed download the app, and rate it one star with a bad review (detailing why) then promptly delete it.
Pretty much the same here. I am fine with minimal advertising. I even go to some ads. One per page please with no motion.
I haven't seen a single one on iOS 9 thusfar.
I installed Adblock on my all my Idevices and just on my phone in one month it blocked 1000's of ads and saved about 500MB of data from being transfer to my phone and I am not the largest user of data and apps in my family. These ads cost you more than time and display real estate, it cuts in to your data plans.
On my home computers I have been blocking ads for a long time, I even got Google analytics completely blocked at my firewall. Most all of google's ad websites and IP address are treated as a virus in my house. You would be surprised at the information flowing back and forth from your computers to google based IP addresses.
Recently I been running into website which know your blocking ads and google data mining services and they will not display information on their website unless you allow the ads. Websites are fighting back on the blocking.
For those who are old enough to remember ads today have gotten so bad it like the old banner ad days with the ads flashing on your browers screen and would not go away until you clicked on it. it the pop-up window with no close button so you could not make the window go away. Believe it or not Google change this all by making things simpler and none intrusive. But they are not the problem which they help fixed.
As I am not using Ad-blocking on desktop Safari yet, can anyone recommend the best extension(s)?
One check box...."Block Google"
Have you seen the numbers on the amount of download data generated by ads and data trackers (not separate issues, btw)?
This amounts to the advertising stealing from ME in the form of overage charges from my carrier. (And its increased greatly over the past few years.)
I'll take care of my own pocket book first, thank you. Advertisers have to back off. They've gone way past obnoxious.

Can't wait to read the web version of AI on my iPad without the ads (which, of late, seems to crash Safari on the iPad again and again).
I hate ads. The scourge of the internet.
I'm with you on that. Thank you Apple.
