Apple has raised its iAd revenue sharing from 60% to 70%, reports The Next Web.The company also recently lowered the minimum ad buy to $100,000.

This is all in an effort to get more brands on board with the company’s proprietary advertising platform.

When asked about iAd at D8, Steve Jobs said, “We’re getting into the advertising business because we want to help our developers make some money.”
