Yeah, I have VPN & filters enabled. I'll attach 4 screenshots from my iPad (5th Gen & latest iOS)

you can try to disconnect your network.
and restart the apps.

if the ads still showing.

It might be Built-in ads (Same to Instagram and YouTube Apps)
These ads cannot block from Adguard Pro

The screenshot shows the filters were last updated in April, as it’s now June either it’s not showing the right date or it isn’t syncing to update the filters.

Experience same situation - in-app ads do persist. I am sure it is not "embedded" ads or whatsoever because it may be perfectly disables by using adguard dns ... but adguard dns is not the purpose => i have bought a subscription ... please, help to resolve --

On which app do you experience the ads @s_007 ? In order to filter ads in apps, DNS server must be setup in either AdGuard or via iOS options.

this one: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/weather-radar-usa/id545993260 (Weather Radar). I understand that setting Adguard DNS will help ... Somehow, expectations were different. Earlier I used Android version, and anticipated similarity in functionality. Since Adguard DNS is free, I see no added value from the purchased license as do not really surf from phone---
Could you capture the ads screen which is the ads location?
I just see the Built-in ads

seems i figured out solution on my own:
dns filtes/add filter: "AdGuard Mobile Ads filter"

now, works as expected regardless from dns resolver selected

I have the same problem: on my iPhone X, I still see ads in some apps. On my iPad however, I don't see ads in the same apps. I checked the Adguard settings twice between both devices. Also tried rebooting the iPhone. But the ads still show up on the iPhone. Am I overlooking something?

I am using Adguard Pro version 4.0.2

EDIT: I added the DNS filter as described in the post above (#33) and it works now on my iPhone :). On my iPad however I have no DNS filter and I don't see any ads in apps. So there is still some difference.

I have this on occasion & it usually is fixed by turning/disabling AG off Then on again.
Also what DNS are you using?

This works guys but whenever I use my iPad from wifi to hotspot or back from hotspot to wifi the dns protection doesn't work unless I turn off and back on again :(

Will this be fixed ?
