It wasn’t the only good news for Search Ads managers all over the world, Apple introduced new tools which assist with controlling dynamic search ads.

Up to now, the US was a singular Apple search ads monopolist. The updated storefronts list is comprised of:

  • Australia;
  • New Zealand;
  • the United Kingdom;
  • the United States.

Even though App store ads is still limited to these English-speaking territories, the market grew considerably with this innovation. Users were given a week to prepare their campaigns for new countries. Those campaigns were allowed to go live on April 25th.

More features for Apple search ads

Сampaign group manager role is another Search ads novelty. It helps publishers and agencies gain more control, now they can distribute access privileges for campaign groups by a storefront, business unit or app.

The ability to duplicate entities also debuted within Apple search ads. Users got a chance to duplicate entities, such as ad groups, settings, and keywords. It facilitated the creation of new campaigns for different audiences across multiple countries.

Nevertheless, these features are still a bit plain and narrow.
