Apple recently added new ads to the App Store Today tab and individual app pages, a move that was unpopular with developers because of some of the types of ads Apple chose to display.

Moreover, Apple is also working on a plan to add search ads to the Apple Maps app on the iPhone starting next year, which will show up when users search for content. Apple is also exploring advertising for other apps and services, Bloomberg said.

Currently, Apple’s advertising business generates about $4 billion in annual revenue, but the company aims to push it to at least $10 billion per year.
