iAd Goes International

| News

Apple has apparently begun delivering iAd content outside the United States and United Kingdom. The company hasn’t officially announced the change, although iOS app developers are reporting they are seeing ad impressions from countries all over the world, according to Mac Rumors.

iAd: Now in your country, too.

The change means iPhone and iPod touch users running iOS 4 are finally seeing iAd-based advertisements in the apps they use in countries around the world.

The expansion comes as users and developers prepare for the release of iOS 4.2, which will bring iAd support to the iPad. The update will also give iPad users multi-tasking and folder support, just like iPhone and iPod touch users have now.

There’s no official word on when iOS 4.2 will ship, although the gold master version has been released to developers. Assuming there aren’t any catastrophic problems with the code, iOS 4.2 could be released to users any day now.

Previously, only commercial companies considered commercials to be the actual content. Now citizens, who previously considered the article the content, do too. Ads are the content. A good contemporary example of where this is occurring is during Super Bowl’s halftime where the ad became the central focus, the content, for the TV viewer.

Have citizens in developed countries become nearly completely corporatized or what?

Perhaps that’s because the ads are more creative and enjoyable than the lame half-time “entertainment.”
