Kochava Product & Partnership Updates Bulletin: Q1 2024

By April 9, 2024Product Updates 26 Min Read

Privacy manifests, iAd framework removal, Apple Vision Pro, Google Privacy Sandbox, and more

The first quarter of 2024 is a wrap, and the annual Kochava Summit hosted industry leaders in Sandpoint, ID, February 13-15. Check out all the excitement, photos, sponsors, and more on LinkedIn.

With 2024 in full swing, let’s unpack the most notable product and partnership updates of the year so far. Key highlights include:

  • Privacy manifest prep for iOS 17
  • iAd framework removal and required SDK updates
  • SDK support for Apple Vision Pro
  • Google Privacy Sandbox for Android
  • TikTok SAN migration updates
  • Release of Meta Install Referrer
  • New Kochava Cost partners
  • New and updated partner integrations

SDK Updates in Prep for Apple’s Privacy Manifests

New privacy manifest and SDK signature requirements for apps on iOS 17 go into effect May 1, 2024. Please consult this detailed blog post to understand what actions you may need to take on your next app update after May 1.


This update is not to be confused with the separate initiative by Apple to remove the old iAd framework that provided attribution for Apple Search Ads prior to introduction of the AdServices framework (see next section). However, the SDK updates you make to address privacy manifest and signature requirements will also fulfill the updates necessary if the next section applies to you—meaning that you can combine your efforts into one app update.

SDK Updates in Prep for iAd Framework Removal

In 2023, Apple deprecated the original iAd framework used to provide attribution for Apple Search Ads (ASA) after having launched the AdServices framework in 2021. See our related blog post about Kochava support for the AdServices framework.

Apple is now communicating that they will completely remove the iAd framework from iOS within the next year and a half, and any apps with SDKs containing iAd framework code will no longer launch on iPhone or iPad.

Apple Search Ads notification about iAd framework


Kochava removed any reference to the iAd framework from iOS SDKs in late 2022 in response to Apple’s shift to the AdServices framework. However, if you’re still using an older version of a Kochava iOS SDK, specifically version 6 or older, you will need to update to at least version 7. If you’re also looking to add privacy manifest support, use this moment to upgrade to SDK v8.

If you have any questions, please contact your client success manager or email

Measurement Support for Apple Vision Pro

In February, Kochava updated its iOS SDK with visionOS support, enabling brands to measure apps on Apple’s Vision Pro, a virtual reality headset released at Apple’s 2023 Worldwide Developers Conference.

Apple’s Vision Framework offers advanced computer vision technologies, enabling developers to create apps that deliver more immersive and interactive user experiences. The framework’s ability to process and analyze images and videos in real-time will undoubtedly lead to innovative features such as augmented reality (AR), object and scene recognition, more personalized content, and new frontiers for app innovation and customer engagement.

To measure apps on Vision Pro, be sure to use Kochava iOS SDK v8.

Google Privacy Sandbox for Android

Are you yearning to learn more about Google Privacy Sandbox for Android and how this key initiative will change mobile advertising? We encourage you to read our recent blog and watch the on-demand webinar Navigating Google Privacy Sandbox—Part 1. Part 2 is coming soon, so subscribe to our newsletter to be alerted when registration opens.

Kochava is an official testing partner for Privacy Sandbox as listed on Google’s partner page. If you’re interested in becoming an early testing partner in collaboration with Kochava, please connect with your client success manager.

TikTok SAN Auto-Migration Completed

For advertisers running campaigns with TikTok for Business, the automated migration of accounts to TikTok’s new self-attributing network (SAN) integration was completed in March. Please see this related blog post for further details.

If you opted out of the auto-migration, please connect with your TikTok account rep and Kochava client success manager to discuss the process for coordinated manual migration.

Meta Install Referrer Support

In January, Kochava released support for Meta Install Referrer, a new Android-specific measurement solution designed to help attribute ad views and clicks to app downloads. This helps advertisers see a more complete performance picture for their Meta Android Campaigns and will likely result in reduced unattributed installs in reporting, as some installs instead report as view-through or cross-session click-through installs. This supports same-session click-through attribution as well as use cases unsupported by Google Play Install Referrer. Read this related blog post to learn more.

New Kochava Cost Partners

Adjoe and Digital Turbine are the newest partners for Kochava cost aggregation support. Updates and enhancements were also made for InMobi and Unity Ads cost integrations. Kochava Cost enables advertisers to pull in accurate spend data across all omnichannel media partners into the Kochava dashboard for one, aggregated view. This helps advertisers better understand and visualize their return on ad spend to optimize campaigns for the greatest impact.
