Adblocking in iOS

I’ve been looking for a better way of blocking ads in iOS. I have an iPad which I only use at home or maybe vacation, therefore I’m always connected to the same WiFi network and I’ve used a pacfile hosted on github to block ads for a long time. This works pretty well but the pacfile is not maintained, it’s not perfect. Any adblocking methods for iOS I’ve found use the blocking in safari, but I only use Chrome and I would like an OS-wide adblocking method. Blokada for Android is great, but does something like this exist for iOS? I’ve been looking in creating a pihole in docker on my Synology but this seems like a lot of work and setup.

Is there a better and easier way then a pacfile or blokada to block ads OS-wide on iOS?

@SedowsGomes Right now our specific products would only block ads from within the browser on iOS. If you use Firefox on Mobile you can also block ads there on iOS. Unfortunately nothing for Chrome yet.

However, unlike AdGuard’s pro model, Wipr best blocks ads on Safari. Therefore, in case you need to disable ads in your whole system, you have to use an opportunity iOS advert-block solution. Also, the app doesn’t provide too many options for personalization.
