Using an app that just can’t stop asking to leave a review is quite irritating.

Also, the great news is that you can now altogether stop receiving these requests by making small changes in the Settings of your smartphone.

Why should you upgrade to iOS 11?

Upgrading to iOS 11 has its benefit. Even if you do not change the setting, you would be notified only thrice a year to review an app. Apple has made it official that it will reject apps that come with their own rating request prompt. There is no way that the developers can ask you to review their app more than thrice a year even if you update it.

Disabling the "In-App Ratings & Reviews" option does not mean that you will never be able to rate or review an app. You can directly open the App store and review and rate the app again. The only difference is that things are now under your control. You can simply choose to review and rate an app or can simply do it by hitting the App Store.
