If you use the Amazon Mobile Ads API and build your app with Apple’s iOS 9 SDK (or Xcode7), the new iOS 9 App Transport Security (ATS) feature will affect your app’s ability to receive ads from the Amazon Mobile Ad Network.
The new App Transport Security feature prevents ads being served via non-secure HTTP, and by default it only allows HTTPS connections over TLSv1.2. There are other security requirements that you should be aware of such as new ciphers and certificates requirements – please see iOS 9 documentation.
To ensure your iOS app continues to work with ads served by the Amazon Mobile Ad Network, you’ll need to configure your app to behave as a pre-iOS 9 app by adding the following properties to your app’s Info.plist file:
Or you can update the app’s Info.plist via Xcode:
Note that this is a short-term solution as the industry moves towards fully supporting HTTPS TLSv1.2.
