it emerged that Apple’s App Tracking Transparency (ATT) features—which cut down the ability to track you on your iPhone by asking for explicit permission—will cost social media firms $10 billion in lost revenue during the second half of this year.

Interesting. If they weren't so expensive, I'd probably get one because of their better privacy protection. But one thing I saw in the article - Apple has an advertising company? When did this happen? And are they using or going to use tracking? Also, I wonder how many ads (if any) that Brave blocks as well as tracking.
