Hello! Recently, I have become concerned about the news that the new iOS devices ( that is, the versions of iOS) will have better ad blocking - is it still worth getting a Mac if my apps make their money from ads?

LOL this is only a plugin for Safari to block ads on web pages like Adblock does in Chrome. They did this because the ad loading drained the battery, iOS 9 saved like 20% battery by just blocking ads. Also ads on mobile web were horrible, you cant even get to the web page from all the pop up video ads and surveys.

Blocking web ads will not harm games advertising in previous year website ads network lost 2 billion revenue caused by ad blocker but now they removed that app . 

If you are game dev in my opinion you also try to develop paid games as well as free so you will survive in 2 different situations .

paid games don't sell well unless you got either greatest innovation of gameplay (like minecraft) or strong IP effect (like Pewdiepie game)

Ads will not disappear. What changes is the entity who benefits from the ad money. Ad blocker blocked ads, but now they selling out (and sold the company) and starting to show "right kind of ads", which are not so intrusive. Ad networks try to corner a piece of eHeaven for themselves and away from Google. Coming developments are just something that tries to cut the ad cake in a different way.
