Upgrading the SDK

👍

Preparing for iOS 14+

With iOS 14 Apple introduced changes to how apps can track users for target advertisement and install attribution. Chartboost manages most of the details, but there are a few new steps that you'll need to handle to successfully integrate our SDK.

If you don't follow the steps below, your inventory will not be SKAdNetwork eligible, and we will not be able to serve the majority of the top ads to your iOS 14.5+ users. This will significantly impact your publisher earnings.

Download and integrate latest Chartboost iOS SDK

Download our latest iOS SDK and follow the integration instructions.

🚧

Caution

You must have iOS SDK 8.3 and above in order for your traffic to be SKAdNetwork eligible.

Enable SKAdNetwork

🚧

Caution

It's critical to include our full list of SKAdNetwork IDs in your apps info.plist as each one represents a demand partner. If SKAdNetwork IDs are missing in your app, our demand partners will not be able to bid on your iOS 14.5 inventory and attribute the install correctly.

Add a new dictionary with Chartboost's SKAdNetworkIdentifier value f38h382jlk.skadnetwork and additional identifiers to the SKAdNetworkItems array in your info.plist.

The full list of Chartboost required SKAdNetwork IDs can be viewed in XML and JSON formats. You'll need to include all SKAdNetworkIdentifiers listed into your info.plist.

Example:

SKAdNetworkItems


SKAdNetworkIdentifier
f38h382jlk.skadnetwork

Pro Tip:

We recommend enabling warning level logs in order to have our most up-to-date SKAdNetwork ID list.

For more information about editing your info.plist please refer to Apple's documentation on configuring the info.plist properly and Editing your property lists pages.
