Beginning with IOS 10.3, app developers will be able to respond to reviews and its responses shall remain public for other users to view. This was made known to developers recently. Have you ever seen companies respond below reviews on Amazon, if yes, this is very similar to apple’s idea.
This also applies to MAC app store. Recently, reviews on the app stores could not be replied directly by its developers but communication was made with its users via social media, emails and other sources.
The ratings and reviewing of apps processes have been streamlined by Apple, you will be able to enter a star rating seamlessly without being turned over to the apple store, this will be made available to IOS 10.3 users.
With this, the review process is more-easier, and might give more people the opportunity for more fee back. Usually, the prompt “rate our app” which seem annoying to users, but with this new approach, this will enable apple to systematically hide these popups from those who hates them.
The release of apple first beta of IOS 10.3 was done today; a new feature to help track misplaced air pods will be added.
