Apple Pushes Users To Upgrade Their iPhones Via Pop-Up Ads In The App Store.

Mad Max: Fury Road topped the blockbusters, Uptown Funk was the earworm to beat the rest and the best iPhone app game of the year had Lara Croft back on the go.

The notification—advertising Apple’s latest “ridiculously powerful” smartphone—asks users to “Learn More” or “Upgrade Now.” Click the links, and you’ll be redirected to Cupertino’s website or the Apple Store app.Likely in hopes of boosting its holiday sales, Apple has surprised a number of iPhone owners by displaying unsolicited pop-up ads within the App Store application that promote the iPhone 6s.

The ad’s text, meanwhile, reads “iPhone 6s Ridiculously Powerful.” The reaction to the ads, first spotted by the blog Cult of Mac, has not been pleasant so far. There’s some irony here as well, given that Apple introduced ad blocking capabilities with the release of the iOS 9 operating system, which allows web users the ability to better control how much advertising they’re exposed to when using their mobile devices, plus block other content that slows down browsing. When it comes to number crunching, Adele’s 25 pipped Taylor Swift’s 1989 at the top album charts on iTunes, while the top selling movie had Pixar’s Inside Out in the number one position on a diverse top 10 list that included the family friendly title of Big Hero 6, the action films Jurassic World and Kingsman: the Secret Service, and the not so family-friendly favourites of Fifty Shades of Grey and Gone Girl.

And a search for “Music,” also around the same time last year, didn’t immediately return a list of streaming apps, but instead showed an ad for iTunes radio.
