The previous week, we mentioned Google’s third-party cookie restriction would start in mid-2023 and finish in late 2023. In addition, we summarized important privacy updates from Apple such as email protection, iCloud updates, secure paste, and current location. To read the previous newsletter, click here.
As we wrote the previous week, Apple’s session at the WWDC 2021 was surprising for everyone, especially the security part, which had important updates.
One of the most important updates was the “Hide My Mail” feature that the company announced.
With the new feature, Apple aims to secure the users via restricting the tracking, including the mail opening data, pixel collecting, and opening time data. We know that 40% of the email clients use iPhone-based Apple Mail services, and the new feature worries marketers. Furthermore, their main concern was the possibility of the other companies following those updates and bringing a familiar restriction. We know that Google is working on a similar feature for Chrome called WebID, widely discussed in W3C circles.
Some marketers believe this privacy change has a huge impact on online marketing with challenging the tracking itself.
With the phasing out of third-party cookies and if the customers decide to keep their email data private from businesses, marketing will be radically altered.
As marketers, we know that email marketing has a high ROI. But it seems that working on the lifetime value of a user or a client would be the safest and gaining strategy to follow.
Enhancing those improvements as an industry, combining them with the ecosystem, will focus on data transparency, accountability, and addressability. Those standards will help marketers and publishers build campaigns based on when and how to connect to their customers. Adapting to all those new adjustments will be difficult. But that’s also what marketing is expected to shape within a couple of years. The companies who stand to build a personalized, long-term relationship rather than one transaction will survive.
In the second quarter of 2021, consumer spending on mobile applications increased by 25% to $34 billion. This means it increased $7 billion since Q2 2020 and $2 billion more than in Q1 2021.
While spending on Apple’s App Store rose by 30% to $22 billion in a year, expenditure on Google Play increased by 20% to $12 billion.
Still, the accelerating digital transformation is accelerating because of the Covid-19 pandemic, but the percentages are promising. Consumers are still getting used to mobile applications; the rate is expected to increase by 20% next year.

The Android App Bundle publishing format, which was released to developers in May 2018. With Android App Bundle, developers will publish their apps 15% smaller than the APK format.
On the 29th of June, Google announced that they would require new apps to be published with the Android App Bundle beginning in August 2021. The blog stated that the goal is to deliver these benefits to more users while also focusing on current Android distribution that benefits all developers. They hope that Android App Bundle will eventually change the APK to the usual publishing format. Even today, some apps are using app bundles, including Twitter, Netflix, and Adobe.
