According to Google, the banner and native ads should now be placed inside the new safe area, ensuring that ad content isn’t obscured. Additionally, on iOS 11 devices, this safe area also respects UI elements, such as navigation bars, status bar, and tab bars.
Google also notes, that with autolayout, you must ensure that “constraints are relative to safe area layout guides.” For manual layout, check that banners and native ads fit within the safeAreaInsets.
Google says, they’re working on to ensure all controls and important content for interstitials and rewarded video ads, are also placed within the safe area as well.
