You ask really great questions and you’re most likely going to have to switch to using the conversions API with Facebook, This was originally called the server-side API. Now it’s called the conversions API. And basically what you will do is switch from a client side analytics application stack to a server side analytics application stack that receives events from the client side, but processes the analytics and the request on the server side so as to not go against the privacy regulations that will now be enforced in iOS 14.
