    Sorry for the stupid question, but now that iOS 9 is out and we've all installed it, I'm seeing threads about content blocking apps. What am I missing? Does iOS 9 open up advertising?

    What advertisements? I've never seen spam pop ups, etc

    There are advertisements and trackers on practically every site including this one. Look on the main page with your phone.
