How to Leverage Flurry Crash Analytics & Reporting to Improve Mobile App User Experience

App developers must find new opportunities to delight app users while also increasing an app’s profitability. And on top of creating an engaging user experience, driving user acquisition, or finding new ways to monetize, the ability to quickly resolve crash incidents is essential for sustaining a positive user experience. 

Flurry Analytics' Guidance for Apple’s Updated App Data Collection Policy

Apple is changing the information required to submit new apps and app updates to the app store effective December 8, 2020. The new submission process will give users transparency about app data usage via a new privacy details section of an app’s product page in the app store. This  “nutrition label” will also include data used by third-party partners integrated  into an app.

Will the iPhone 12 Convince Consumers to Replace Older iPhones?

When Apple launches its annual line-up of new iPhones each Fall, it creates a surge in device adoption that spans the holiday season. Since the 2017 launch of the completely reimagined iPhone X, improvements to subsequent phones have been incremental, offering gains mainly related to the chipset, camera and screen. Since then Apple has released the iPhone XS and XR variants, the iPhone 11 line up and the 2nd Generation iPhone SE. The iPhone 12, coupled with 5G support, seems poised for stronger than usual uptake.

How iOS 14 Negatively Impacts Ad Revenue for Mobile App Publishers

When Apple announced iOS 14, it outlined a new policy which requires app publishers to seek end user permission to access a user’s IDFA. While estimates on forecasted opt-in rates vary, the result is clear: the IDFA will become scarce. Among the implications for app developers, the most pressing is an expected large drop in advertising revenue. In this post, we’ll discuss how disabling the IDFA leads to a sizable drop in ad revenue.

Preparing for iOS 14

At this year’s WWDC, Apple announced that iOS 14 will change how developers can collect and share end user data. We’re summarizing the most important changes here, and how we’re helping you prepare for iOS 14. 

Using Flurry Analytics

Please note that Flurry Analytics is unaffected by these changes, and you can continue to use the service without any issues before and after iOS 14 is released.

Apple’s iPhone SE 2 Building Momentum After Slow Start

Following the Fall 2019 launch of the iPhone 11 series—the most expensive and advanced iPhones to date—Apple launched the value-priced 2nd generation iPhone SE on April 24, 2020. The popular 1st generation iPhone SE was offered in 2016 as a less expensive alternative to the then flagship iPhone 6S and 6S Plus devices. And the launch of the second generation version follows the same playbook by offering strong value at a low price point. In this report, Flurry looks at how well the launch of the 2nd generation iPhone SE (aka iPhone SE 2) fared in the United States.
