How to Disable Apps from Tracking in Apple iPhone (IDFA)?

Apple’s IDFA is the identifier for advertisers and with the launch of Apple iOS 14.5, Apple will start to restrict how Apps will get the IDFA from iOS 14.

It is expected that the App must receive the authorization of App Tracking from the user using the ATT (App Trackin Transparency) framework by adding the NSUserTrackingUsageDescription and implementing some changes to the App especially when you want to perform some App tracking that is reliant on IDFA.

Note: Without the implementation of the ATT framework, the IDFA from a user will be zeroed out completely and might cause a loss in ad revenue.
