App Store Reviews No Longer Accessible By iOS Beta Users

Thats some relief for the app developers as iOS Beta Testers won't be able to give reviews in the App Store

Apple recently enacted a change that counteracts clients with devices running its most recent iOS beta (that is iOS 9 at this moment) from leaving reviews in the App Store. This is a sensible and completely intelligent move since beta variants of iOS are works in advancement which may influence or break certain parts of a developer’s application without at first being either mindful, at shortcoming, or ready to give a fix.

In that regard, it doesn't bode well for iOS beta clients to have the capacity to make open remarks around an application while utilizing test programming, especially when most App Store clients — and in this way individuals perusing, and being impacted by, the reviews . Beta users who try to leave reviews on the App Store will now be met with a message reading, “You can’t write reviews while using a prerelease version of iOS.”

Apart from the negative reviews, this also means those beta testers can't post positive reviews for new apps they've downloaded that are working fine. But the change is still one that's sure to be welcomed by developers, not having to worry about their reputation being damaged by beta users means that developers won’t feel obliged to quickly create fixes and patches designed for the latest prerelease software.

Apple opened the beta project for iOS to people in general surprisingly this year. In spite of rolling out that improvement to let millions all the more in, it didn't confine application surveys. There's no word yet in the event that this new application surveys approach will likewise advance toward the beta variants of OS X for Mac, like 10.11 El Capitan. In any case, it does appear to be likely seeing as how rapidly Apple has tended to developers' objection.
