What marketers need to know about the Apple WWDC announcements [Podcast]
In this week's show, our crew explains what Apple said this week about ad targeting and autoplay blocking in Safari, the new HomePod device and more.
Browsers have become a battleground for ads, and Apple announced its latest salvo this week at their annual WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference): Safari will soon begin limiting third-party ad trackers from following users around the web. (Google made headlines recently with its announcement that “annoying” ads will be blocked in its Chrome browser.) Apple also shared plans to have Safari block autoplay videos by default — a move that could have significant impact on video ads.
In this week’s episode of our Marketing Land Live podcast, we discuss the Safari announcements and explain how they could impact the digital advertising landscape. We also talk about Apple’s announcement of HomePod, its new, in-home speaker/assistant that will compete with Amazon Echo and Google Home — even though Apple seemed to purposely downplay that competition.
