  • iOS 9 Will Let Developers Make Content Blocking Extensions for Mobile Safari


    Apple's online developer library notes that developers for iOS 9 will be able to create content blocker add-ons for Mobile Safari, much like they can for the desktop version of Safari in Mac OS X.

    Content blockers might include ad blockers, malicious IP address blockers, cookie blockers, pop-up blockers, and various other forms of allowing users to control what can be used or seen on a device from the Web. Users would obviously have every say in what is installed on their devices, so developers wouldn't be able to maliciously block things without the user knowing.

    These add-ons would be toggleable from the device's settings, so if the user decided that they wanted to disable the content blocker for a moment in time, they could do so with the flip of a switch.

    The content blockers would likely be available on the App Store as downloadable applications, just like keyboard extensions and Notification Center extensions.
