Ad blocking with the latest IOS releases

Since the recent IOS 17 and iPadOS 16.7, I have noticed a large increase in the number of ads I see.
Typically, IOS has been relatively clean and not needing third-party ad-blockers for Safari.
Since the latest updates, I see flashing, moving ads everywhere to the point that some European news sites like BBC are almost unusable. I sometimes just give up and move to my PC which doesn’t have the problem. I use Adblock Plus there, but the IOS version doesn’t seem effective at all.

Anyone else notice this?


I’m Android myself, but how about the AdBlock Browser?

An iPhone 11 Pro Max here, iOS 17, didn’t make any difference for me, but I don’t use the browser for much, other than maybe Wordle or news followup… An the desktop (Mac Mini), also AdGuard keeps it under control… Nothing on the iPhone…
