The developer documentation for the iOS 10.3 beta has revealed that developers will soon be able to respond to user reviews in the App Store and the Mac App Store. Mobile development firms have been asking for the feature for some time, and it has been available to Android developers through Google Play for some time.
In addition, the iOS update will also allow developers to ask users to leave ratings and reviews. This could help developers boost downloads for their apps, but some users find the solicitations irritating. Some reports say that Apple will limit the number of times developers can ask users for reviews.
