Here's a list of iOS apps that AdGuard for iOS can't filter and/or remove the ads from (due to whatever technical reasons - it's likely different case-to-case!). So there will be ads in these apps when running AdGuard for iOS...

Facebook
Instagram
Twitter
YouTube

This list will be updated as more apps are found, thanks!

I had Adguard on Android devices and it was pure joy to remove ads from apps.
New iOS user, I discover that
1/ I had to pay iOS app (2,29 euro) while I already have a Android licence... (well, I use it in my Android tablet now) .So.
2/ Filters are less efficient on iOS than Android. Sometimes, in apps, I can see ads... For example : Meteo France. When started, this app shows a full-page ad... On Android, this ad was removed...

How can we remove this kind of ad ?

For the first part, existing mobile licenses can't be used on AdGuard for iOS due to Apple app store limitations and requirements forbidding the use of any type of licensing outside of the App Store, hence one of the reasons why AG Pro for iOS is pretty cheap compared to the other AG apps.

For the second, try reporting the full-page ad with the reporting tool. It's built within AG for iOS now (via a report a problem function), but I can't confirm how it works since I don't have any iDevices.

OK, I've just discovered log tracker. It's easy to block some IP ou domains... Well, after several black list addings, these ads diseapered. Cool ! Thanks !
Next time, I will know where I can configure Adguard.

The tool doesn't provide an option to report ads missed by AdGuard DNS yet, we will add it later.

You can use forum (Missed Ads subforum) to report such ads though.

Spotify audio ads get through.

And they likely will, since AG Pro for iOS is about to lose the local VPN (aka system-wide ad blocking) feature and it won't filter the Spotify app anymore, thanks to Apple's policy.
