iOS - iAd Integration


iAd is used to display ads, served by the apple server. iAd helps us in earning revenue from an iOS application.

iAd Integration – Steps Involved

Step 1. Create a simple view-based application.

Step 2. Select your project file, then select targets and then add iAd.framework in choose frameworks.

Step 3. Update ViewController.h as follows −

#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
#import <iAd/iAd.h>
@interface ViewController : UIViewController<ADBannerViewDelegate>
    ADBannerView *bannerView;

Step 4. Update ViewController.m as follows −

#import "ViewController.h"

@interface ViewController ()


@implementation ViewController

- (void)viewDidLoad
    [super viewDidLoad];
    bannerView = [[ADBannerView alloc]initWithFrame:
    CGRectMake(0, 0, 320, 50)];
    // Optional to set background color to clear color
    [bannerView setBackgroundColor:[UIColor clearColor]];
    [self.view addSubview: bannerView];

- (void)didReceiveMemoryWarning
    [super didReceiveMemoryWarning];
    // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.

#pragma mark - AdViewDelegates

-(void)bannerView:(ADBannerView *)banner 
 didFailToReceiveAdWithError:(NSError *)error{
    NSLog(@"Error loading");

-(void)bannerViewDidLoadAd:(ADBannerView *)banner{
    NSLog(@"Ad loaded");
-(void)bannerViewWillLoadAd:(ADBannerView *)banner{
    NSLog(@"Ad will load");
-(void)bannerViewActionDidFinish:(ADBannerView *)banner{
    NSLog(@"Ad did finish");



When we run the application, we'll get the following output −
