The mobile phone is the first station to open email. At the end of 2020, 59% of them were unlocked on the phone, including 66% on the iPhone. In this sense, email marketing is an essential communication lever for businesses, allowing them to send bulk messages to their audience with just a few clicks. However, iOS 15 brought about significant changes in the world of email marketing. Released by Apple on September 20, this update transforms user privacy protection devices. In its latest white paper, Relatia, a French specialist in relationship marketing and E-CRM solutions, highlights the impact of iOS 15 on relationship marketing and existing solutions to continue to leverage this lever.
Tips to continue profiting from email marketing
iOS 15 allows users to better control the use of their personal data, particularly thanks to Apple’s Mail privacy protection. With this feature, web beacons, which collect information about a user when they open an email, such as their location or IP address, can no longer be used. Despite opting out of Apple Mail Privacy Protection, more than 60% of Apple users choose to turn it on.
