IOS 11 will stop apps from begging you for reviews

More app developers will likely be offering the virtual currencies so that you can tip them if you want, and now we know Apple has it setup and is cool with it.

Tencent's WeChat instant messaging platform shut down the tipping function of its apps in the Apple Store in April, after failing to reach an agreement with Apple on the issue. Some app developers might be more inclined to give a bigger percent to the content creators if they are wonderful at what they do and have helped build up the app.

Apple introduced its own rate and review prompts a few months ago.

When it comes to in-app purchases, Apple already gets a part of that money, and then the rest goes to the app developer.

Apple's solution certainly provides a better user experience than custom alternatives, particularly since it allows rating an app without needing to visit the App Store. To note, companies such as Uber and Waze will continue to receive data about a user's location at a certain point of time as long as the location tracking feature is enabled.

To summarize, as the App Store makes the shift to strongly controlled curated content it will become more important than ever to get featured but it might become even more hard to get featured which may impact small/medium developers.

What I'm trying to say here is that by banning things, in this case like Pepe, will only drive people away, and that this could have been avoided by adding additional features for individual users to customize what appears on the App Store will only stifle such uproars like the one going on regarding Pepe's disappearance from the App Store.

Users will also be able to opt out of receiving pop-ups entirely. Previously, when a new app version of an iOS app was released, the ratings would be reset to zero since the current App Store only aggerates reviews of the current versions of the software. As has been pointed out, this is impossible in iOS because apps are isolated and unable to interrogate other apps installed on the same device.
