Apple suspends Search Ads on the App Store in Russia until further notice

Apple has sent an email to the developer community announcing that it is suspending the Apple Search Ads service on the App Store in Russia “until further notice.”

“Apple Search Ads has been suspended on the App Store in Russia until further notice,” the company said in the email. “All Apple Search Ads campaigns running on the App Store in Russia have been placed on hold, and no new campaigns will be eligible to run on the App Store in Russia for the duration of the suspension.”

Apple Search Ads was launched in the country back in May 2020. 

The company, which has made a series of moves to stand up to invasion so far, stopped product sales in Russia last week and removed two popular apps (RT News and Sputnik News) from the App Store. Apple also reduced Apple Maps features in Ukraine, and is donating to relief efforts.
