| Quick Tip

App Store reviews are really important for developers, but sometimes those in-app requests for reviews can get too annoying. If you’ve reached the tipping point and want to turn them off you’re in luck because you can. Read on to learn how.

To turn off in-app ratings and reviews on your iPhone or iPad, do this:

  • Launch the Settings app
  • Choose iTunes & App Stores
App Store review settings on iPhone

You can disable in-app review requests in Settings on your iPhone or iPad

  • Toggle off In-App Ratings & Reviews

Now you won’t be bugged by pop-up dialogs asking you to rate the app you just launched.

With great power comes great responsibility, and in this case that means you still need to give developers some app review love. Just launch the App Store app and find the apps you already downloaded, then look for the Ratings & Reviews section below the app preview. Tap the stars next to Tap to Rate, or choose Write a Review if you have something more to say.

    Thank you! I do give reviews for apps in the App Store, but I hate nags such as the requests. Now we can just have Safari block popups asking for page visitors to submit their email address so they can send you updates.
