Apple has recently modified the way smart app banners are handled. When users open a web page hosted by Apple News + content publishers, users will be directed to apple news apps instead of third-party apps. < / P > < p > specifically, smart app banners will prompt users to open content in the apple news app, at least for news + Partners currently using the API. As implemented in IOS 13, the smart app banner framework allows developers to prompt users to download their third-party apps from the app store or open the appropriate links from safari. < / P > < p > in the latest IOS 14 beta, smart app banner API or Safari detects the domain name of news + partner website, which triggers the display of the modified promotion banner. The smart app banner code on the affected page has not changed, indicating that this is a change in the way Safari handles publisher URLs. Privacy Policy
