How To Block Unity Ads on iPhone

If you’re an enthusiastic gamer like me, you’ve thought about how to block Unity ads quite often. They annoyingly affect the gaming experience and can be difficult to eliminate across other apps. If you play games like Pokemon GO, HearthStone, Cities Skylines, Pillars of Eternity, and Clustertruck, here’s how you can keep your gaming experience clean.

How to Block Unity Ads on iPhone

1. Prevent the Game App From Accessing the Internet

Time needed: 2 minutes

  1. Open the Control Center.

  2. Tap on Airplane mode to cut off internet access before launching the game.

    Turn on Airplane mode

Even though there’s no internet connection, placeholders for Unity ads may still appear. However, they will appear blank, which is a much better alternative to flashy ad banners. 

2. Disable Cellular Access for Specific Games

Sometimes, I need internet access to run other applications. Disabling cellular and internet access to the specific game app is a great alternative. Here’s how:

  1. Go to Settings > Mobile Service.

  2. The mobile service page will display a list of mobile apps that use internet service apps page on iPhone
  3. Tap the green toggle button to shut off internet access for the specific game.

Follow these steps to block Unity ads from showing location-based adverts.

  2. Tap Location Services

However, I wouldn’t recommend you turn off location services as you may have important apps that need the feature (for example, Fintech apps and Maps). 

  1. Rather, scroll through the list of apps and tap on the game.
  2. Tap on Never to cut off location access.
