Apple's App Transport Security affects you
Starting on 1st January, 2017, Apple is forcing application developers to use TLS security for all new or updated apps on the App Store.
What does this mean for operators?
Any operator that relies on HTTP Header Enrichment will quickly and unceremoniously have that capability taken away.
That means saying goodbye to any system of identity management, customer experience management, customization or monetization which relies upon it.
Because simply, all home-grown applications or partner relationships that rely on HTTP Header Enrichment for identity management will be starved of data, and effectively become useless.
…And it's not just Apple. In January 2017, Google will also start labelling websites as "non-secure" if they use HTTP.
