Forget fast loading pages and annoying ads, iOS ad blockers save you money. That’s right, it’s not only about the fact that you iPhone moves more or less like a snail or that you get a ton of info that you don’t want to see on your little screen, it’s about keeping money in your wallet for something that you might actually need.
It all started when Apple saw that their users didn’t want apps anymore, so the new iOS 9 came in with the groundbreaking detail that shook the Apple world: you can now ad block. That was only the spark that lit up the fire. Shortly after iOS 9 was installed by millions, ad blocking apps started popping up more and more, revealing that people have indeed been waiting for this for a very, very long time.
We know what you are thinking: “Ok, ok, but get to the how I save money part.” It’s quite easy: because you do not have ads loading up on all your pages, you keep the data that was normally used after loading those ads. You pay for that data, so now you officially have it and can do anything else you want with it.
And that’s not all, because it gets way better and subtle. Ads are designed based on a strategy, both local and psychological. Simple example: you go to a state and you search for something on the internet. That something is associated with another cool item that is found in a ton of ads. You keep seeing these ads over and over, a person or two tell you that it’s a great deal and boom! You want it, even though you do not need it. So no ad, no distraction, no money spent.
Apart from this really cool system, you obviously get the “physical” advantages too: pages load faster, you save a lot of time, you might not get angry if your phone loads so slowly and so on. The New York Times wanted to see these advantages for themselves and they were proven correctly. Did you also know that ad blockers improve your battery life a little bit, too? Well you know now.
So don’t be shy and grab an ad blocker. It’s not because it is going to become popular, but you are actually doing yourself a major favor. It’s time to get back at those guys who have been selling us stuff we don’t need on the internet for so many years.
