    But you cannot install an adblocker on your phone. That's where I use GBATemp the most.

    What is the app called? Or do mobile browsers support extensions now.

    Brave on Android or adguard or purify on iOS. Even though I pay for Patreon those are what I use on my devices.

    GBAtemp is supported by ad-revenue and it is not up to GBAtemp to help you block ads - this is something that is left up to you as a capable functioning individual.

    In case it'd help if I made it more clear to the OP:

    Donating $5 a month to the Patreon removes ads from the site. Including on the mobile browser.

    • Adaway on a rooted Android
    • Adguard, Adaway, and/or Firefox with uBlock Origin on an unrooted Android
    • You don't deserve adblocking if you made the conscious decision to get an iPhone.

    If you have a rooted phone, you can edit your hosts file with AdAway to automatically block ad servers. you could also use mobile firefox since it supports extensions, but that's only for stuff on your your browser and not within other apps

    EDIT: Lacius above me had the exact same idea in a more concise manner

    You phandroids kill me. iOS has built-in ad blocking for safari. You can VPN adblock for just about anything else.

    To further fill the echo chamber...

    There are various adblockers you can use on your phone (iPhone or Android). If you have an Android you can root, I'd recommend Adaway (as previously mentioned).

    Phandroids, iBots... Blah blah blah...

    Please don't act like Apple makes customization or the use of third party apps easy.

    I didn't say adblocking was impossible on iOS, but I'm not sure why a person with an iPhone would expect to be able to do it (or anything else outside Apple's sandbox) at all.

    The App store makes the use of third party apps easy, and people expect to be able to use things like adblockers on the web because that's what people do! The fact that iPhone has one pre-installed that works with Apple's web browser seems to not be registering here. You can also install a version of Firefox with adblocking and privacy turned on, which sounds a lot like android to me. And if you're going to go through the trouble of rooting your device, you could also jailbreak and do it that way.
    Don't be jealous because we get 5+ years of firmware updates.

    I am looking for an adblocker that lets you block certain elements, like ublock origin.

    On my android, I use "Firefox Nightly" with uBlock Origin and it does let you select elements to hide.

    FireFox Nightly also gives back access to about:config

    https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ios/testflight/

    I also agree haha


    Do you even know what side loading an app is?????????????...just act like I put a thousand question marks please. Android and iOS are both shit, but one of them is shittier. And it's the one that doesn't let you side load. Side loading apps is easier than being stuck without the ability to download apps not on your phone's app store. You ignoring this fact is the epitome of Apple users ignoring facts for feels. However I totally believe both companies are evil and that Google would have done the same if they could have, but I assume they thought they'd make less money if they did that, as all they care about is money, nothing more.
