iOS 15

Apple Mail Privacy Protection

Apple’s Mail Privacy Protection (MPP) is a privacy update that will be available for users of the Apple Mail app on iOS 15, iPadOS 15, macOS Monterey, and watchOS 8, released in mid-September. For users who opt-in to MPP, emails will now be preloaded using proxy servers, caching images and hindering the ability to leverage tracking pixels for metrics like open tracking. To learn more about MPP and issues regarding email deliverability metrics and issues with pre-existing campaigns and Canvases that trigger based on these metrics, visit our documentation.
