In-app reviews are a way for developers to boost the visibility of their apps, by helping potential users decide whether or not an app is the right one for their needs. However, the in-app prompts to give a review of the app can be a bit irritating, especially if you have a load of apps on your device.

Luckily, it’s easy to toggle in-app prompts of app reviews can be easily toggled off with just a few taps of your finger. Here’s how.

How To Turn Off In-App Review Requests in iOS 11

5.) That’s it!

While this offers a great way to disable prompts to review apps in iOS 11, don’t neglect to review the apps you really like (or really despise). Reviews are a vital part of the App Store ecosystem, so be sure to rate the apps you use all of the time. (Or, the apps you can’t stand to use.)
