I recently found out a way to stop my iPhone from sending me constant alerts asking me to review apps.

You've probably seen this yourself: You open an app and, every once in a while, it asks you to give it a review. It's one way developers can get feedback on apps and boost their ranking in the App Store. But, as a user, it can get awfully annoying.

Some apps make it hard to close out if you don't feel like rating right now, for example. Or they seem to barrage you with a request for a review every time you open it.

You can easily turn this option off so that developers won't ask for product feedback when you're using the app. You can always just go to the App Store and search for the app again if you want to leave a review.

Here's what to do:

  • Open Settings on your iPhone.
  • Tap your name at the top of the list.
  • Choose "iTunes & App Store."
  • Scroll down and turn off the toggle button next to "In-App Ratings & Reviews."

That's it! Now you should find that you won't receive requests to review apps when you use them.
