Apple clarifies how tips should work in iOS apps

We've all been there; you download an app, use it regularly, and find yourself frequently prompted to write an App Store review.

If you still dislike the new way of Apple encouraging you to rate apps, you can turn them off altogether by heading into the iOS Settings app. But the concern from developers may be the loss of control over when, or how often, that prompt is presented.

If you're particularly fond of an app, you may feel like showing your appreciation to the developer by throwing a little money in their direction.

Developers might be wary of this change because of how important user reviews are perceived to be, but prompts for reviews were becoming an intolerable nuisance, but at least Apple is providing a key benefit for developers with that feature.
