Developers Can Reply to Negative Customer Reviews in iOS 10.3 & macOS 10.12.4
Apple now allows app developers to reply to customer reviews, given they have iOS 10.3 or macOS 10.12.4 installed.
Developers Can Now Address Negative Reviews on App Store Immediately, Thanks to iOS 10.3 and macOS 10.12.4
Apple seeded the first betas of iOS 10.3 and macOS 10.12.4 a while back. Both firmwares come packed with great features with one of them allowing developers to respond to customer reviews. This is a fairly important feature given how users tend to leave negative reviews for an app or game, leaving no way for a developer to address the issue in a prompt manner.
Probably the most great thing about this feature is that developer replies to customers will be public, allowing everyone to see what the creator behind the app or game has to say. This will, in turn, help other users who might have the similar issue that has been addressed by the developer. Handy stuff, if you're asking us.
iOS 10.3 and macOS 10.12.4 are currently available as developer-only betas, with the final release due in a few weeks. But we are expecting the public beta for both software to go live within this week, if not the next one. This will give opportunity to anyone to try out Apple's upcoming software without having to toss in $99 onto a developer membership with Apple.
If you have a developer membership at hand, and you are just a regular user, then it is advised to install beta software on a device that does not serve the purpose of a daily driver with you. There's no telling when the software might become an obstruction during usage, forcing you to restart your device to bring things back to normal. So, please, exercise as much caution as possible.
As we stumble across more gems in iOS 10.3 and macOS 10.12.4 betas, we will inform our readers about it. In the meantime, be sure to let us know in the comments section whether or not you are running Apple's latest beta software on your devices. If you are, then how are things faring for you?
