    Removing ads from the App Store is ludicrous, the entire store is an ad. 
    It is not ludicrous. It is what I want.  A product list is not an ad.  The ad in the App Store are the “featured” apps and “we recommend “ type fluff.  Which I don’t want and hate when I go into the App Store.  

    I need a search bar, and maybe a list of categories I can manually browse if I so desire.  

    I don’t need it want featured ads or any of the other ads in the App Store.  IIRC that is how the App Store was in the beginning (or at least closer to that).  

    And in general I don’t need help “discovering “ anything.  Apple Music is terrible at this, bombarding me with “new music for my library” and all sorts of other promotions for things that I have absolutely no interest in.  Not once has it recommended anything of interest to me.  Yet when I go into the Apple Music app all I see are recommendations for crap.  And I get regular emails recommending crap to me. 

    So Apple, don’t tell me that Ad Personalization helps me discover anything.  It doesn’t.  It only clutters my screen with uninteresting crap.  

    Well said…. Mic drop!

    But anyway, you missed the point.

    People hate ads.  People hate pop ups more.  People really, really hate pop ups that know too much about them. 

    Apple, don’t make people hate you.


    Is it you who's missed the point? The article is concerning a method that allows the user to choose whether or not they receive personalised ads. So what's the problem here? Don't like personalised ads? Turn them off! Simple.
    I think it would be wise if you reconsidered attacking others….especially when you are incorrect.  

    The “feature” doesn’t allow a user to turn ads off.   It only gives you the choice of receiving ads that are generic in nature or ads that some third party targets against you based on a profile they collect on your identity.  From Apple and the article “Turning on Personalized Ads increases the relevance of ads shown”.

    My point still stands.  Many people choose Apple because they protect users from tracking, profiling, etc.  it is a slippery slope to profit on profiling users.  

    People hate ads.  People hate pop ups more.  People really, really hate pop ups that know too much about them. 

    Apple, don’t make people hate you.
