App reviews are incredibly important for developers that have apps available on the iPhone. A well-reviewed app can rank better in searches, and it provides a level of trust for people that are considering downloading the app. Many people don’t like to leave app reviews though, or simply forget to do so once they have started using an app. Apple lets app developers prompt their users to leave reviews while using the app in the hopes that their review numbers can increase.
But if you don’t like receiving these prompts to leave a review, or you simply aren’t someone that reviews apps, you are able to turn off those prompts so that you aren’t bothered while using your phone. Our tutorial below will show you how to turn off these in-app rating prompts on your iPhone.
