Construct 2 has been officially retired. Now you should upgrade to Construct 3.

iAd object

The iAd object allows ads from Apple's iAd service to be displayed in iOS apps built with PhoneGap Build.

Note: the iAd App Network is discontinued from June 30th 2016. The iAd plugin has been hidden in Construct 2 accordingly and should not be used for new projects. This documentation is provided for legacy reference only.


For information on how to register for an iAd account and set up your app to use it, please refer to Apple's documentation, in particular the iTunes Connect developer guide.
