iOS 10.3 will help you most annoying feature of iOS
Have you ever experienced the Pop-Up asking for the review on your favorite app? I assume you must be. Review is one of the ways to get an appreciation for the hard work developer does behind the app, but some of the developers keep pushing the review pop-up continuously. Which according to me is one of the most annoying things about iOS, but with iOS 10.3 Apple is finally going to fix it. I’m referring of course to the irritating habit of some app developers to constantly remind users to rate their apps.

Currently, apps can prompt for reviews and ratings in the App Store however they please. This ranges from subtle links in settings pages to full-screen modal popups. As ratings contribute so heavily to placement in App Store search rankings, many apps prompt users on a very regular basis — often once per app version.

Who hasn’t had to deal with this on their iPhone or iPad? I can’t even remember how many times I’ve seen the stupid “rate this app” reminder on my iOS devices. As I stated above is the most annoying experience while using the Apps.

But all that is about to change with iOS 10.3, Apple has added restrictions and additional control that lets users permanently turn off those annoying app rating reminders.

I can’t wait to disable the app review nag screen permanently. That will be the first thing I do after installing iOS 10.3. When I want to review an app, I’ll do so. But I certainly don’t need or want any of my apps reminding me to post a review.

In fact, when an app does remind me to rate it, I’m actually more likely to give it a lower rating than I might have otherwise. Yes, that is how annoying I find the reminders to rate apps in iOS.

The only point we want to make here is, high frequency of alerts is a pain point for customers who just want to use the app and get on with their day. The new Apple-sanctioned-SK-Store-Review-Controller API can be disabled at a system level by users with a toggle in Settings if they don’t ever want to see the rating request screen. In addition to the three-per-year limit, once a user leaves a review, the popup will never be shown again.

Other than this Apple iOS 10.3 includes several new features for iPhone and iPad users, like Find my AirPods, Siri cricket scores, and more. When iOS 10.3 is released to the public, Apple will also launch the ability for developers to be able to reply to reviews left by App Store customers.
