“Advertising Identifier” is assigned with every Apple ID. As a result, Apple’s advertising system is able to track you across the apps when you sign in with your Apple ID on your iPhone and iPad.

Having collected certain data based on your interest, Apple shows you more personalized or relevant ads. The iAds appear not just in the third party apps you download from the App Store but also in the stock apps like Safari.
