As for the average Joe? chances of them being targeted and hit successfully, are next to none, not impossible, but very close.

Just a spoiler alert here from a guy that works for one of the biggest corporations on the planet - there is no such thing as "immune to leaks, hacks or other similar things".

Way to make a mountain out of a mole hill.
Also, this is in the App Store, and gladly not on the phone itself - it's not unreasonable to see some sort of advertising from the company that the store belongs to, to owners that use a 2 year old phone.
Has anyone checked if there were any incentives attached to the ad?
Anonymous, 14 Dec 2015Remember the huge leak of celebrity nude photos last year? It came from Apple's servers...That wasn't a leak, that was a hack, and it wasn't a hack on Apple servers, it was a hack on government infrastructure, which inadvertently gave access to a few iCloud accounts, this has since been resolved and also it was only huge because a few celebs were hit, it was not huge in the sense that large numbers of people were affected.

dexterouz, 14 Dec 2015So, they know what device the users has and based on that they are promoting their own product... moreApple know's almost everything about your device, from which device it is to the color etc, I share my shit with Apple with pleasure because they aren't google (yes you can turn it off), and your data is infinitely safer with Apple, I don't like this targeted ad approach they seem to have taken though, it's the first that I am aware of and hopefully the last! Alot of stuff seems to be popping on the Apple campus lately.
WTF ad's? WTF is going on lately? Glad I will never see this ad, but still the guys using 5s and below, I feel sorry for them, ad's are the scourge of the earth and no one should have to deal with them!
So, they know what device the users has and based on that they are promoting their own products. Sounds like Android advertisement but only to themselves :) :P
hello! anybody out there. full screen ads have been around for sometime. Use a pop up blocker. Talking of Apple suing, what about all these Apple look alike handsets cropping up no one has been sued yet. Oh wait a minute Apple sued Samsung because they said the Galaxy Ace looked a lot like the iPhone 4. And that was only because Samsung had come up with a style similar to that of Apple. And Apple was top then. Anyway with phones going the way they are how can you design a slab any other way.
Typhoon, 12 Dec 2015Shocking!! Another iPhone article full of Android users obsessed with Apple..Probably because those same users are the ones who keep up with the tech articles and such. I can't say the same for the iPhone users.
Ouch, what makes it bad is there's no back button on an iPhone so the user might tap on something by mistake.
Nechpech, 12 Dec 2015Works both ways.You're new? Naive kid?
Apple articles have way more obsessed Android fanboys than the other way around. Just look a few articles above. Android can't even keep time, but Android fanboys are more interested in an ad on the Apple store. Ridiculous.
