How to Fix this Problem?

Here is what you do to fix this problem as best as possible. The setting is found in settings, Privacy and then Tracking.

1.If your Apple ID is new and is only a few days old you need to let it age a few days before the feature starts working.

2.If your Apple ID is associated or was created by a educational institution then that may be the problem.This can be based on their policies.

3.If your Apple ID age has you at 18 years old or younger this may pose a problem.

4.Go to settings, Privacy, Apple Advertising and make sure to turn on Personal Ads if its off. You will be able to turn the feature on now.

5.Seeing this is a bug, it should be fixed at the next major or significant update of your iPhone. So go ahead and make sure your device is up to date. Once the correct update is out the issue should be fixed and if all of the above is ok you should be able to turn the feature on.
