When the App Store featured content blockers for the first time, publishers threw a fit, disregarding what end-users were looking for. Within a day, three of the top five paid apps were ad blockers. ‘Ad blockers for iPhone’ quickly became a top search. Let us delve into the details.
Why Are Ad Blockers So Popular Among Users?

Other major reasons for using an adblocker is to include protect privacy, a necessity on iPhones.

Video ads can be the most disruptive. Nobody likes being forced to watch ads with no option to close or get rid of them. The sharp rise in popularity of mobile ad blockers can probably be attributed to this. Ad blocker users have grown from 20 million in 2009 to a staggering 200 million in 2015.
