Apple iOS 15 Privacy Update and ContactMonkey

The new Apple iOS 15 privacy update may have you wondering if your tracking by ContactMonkey will be affected. This article goes over the changes made by Apple, and whether this affects you.

About the new iOS 15 Update

Apple’s iOS 15 update prevents email tracking with a new system of Mail Privacy Protection features. This update also prevents email tracking on iPadOS 15, and macOS Monterey (Source).

Does this affect ContactMonkey?

The good news is that this exception only applies to users who use Apple Mail as their default mail application!

Outlook and Gmail applications remain unaffected by the new iOS 15 update. 

You will still be able to track and receive tracking information that you are used to seeing while using ContactMonkey.
