Apple announced that it has launched its advertising product iAd into as many as 70 new countries after only offering it in 25 before.

In fact, before this month iAd was only available in 16 countries. On October 3, the company announced its expansion into Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, and Sweden.

Apple doesn't spend a whole lot of breath on the new announcement, simply saying:

iAd is now available in 70 additional countries across the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Australia, expanding global reach to 95 countries. Ad campaigns can be created in minutes using iAd Workbench.

Last month, Apple announced the availability of iAd Producer 5, which manages HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript behind iAds. It also offers JavaScript editing and debugging.

"And once you’ve created your ad, iAd Producer helps you optimize the performance of your iAd, and with a few clicks helps you to submit it for certification to launch on the iAd App Network," the company explains.

In August, Apple launched some new ad formats including pre-roll video and full-screen interstitial banner ads.
