Apple just made all your iPhone apps way less annoying

As expected, there are a lot of new features and updates on the new iOS, so we chose to compile a list of the top 10 features you need to know about iOS 11. This new paragraph requires developers to use the official in-app rating UI added in iOS 10.3 and states that they "will disallow custom review prompts" going forward ... The verbiage is bundled into the Apple's developer guidelines within the section on in-app purchases.

One use case demonstrated at the conference shows an Apple Watch communicating with fitness equipment sharing data about heart rate and calories.

The latest design offers separate tabs for games and apps. To put the app store's growth in perspective: when the original iPhone launched, the App Store only featured 500 apps - now, Apple's digital storefront is home to over 2.2 million apps and games.

App review prompts are one of the more annoying - though admittedly minor - issues with smartphones and tablets. Previously, when a new app version of an iOS app was released, the ratings would be reset to zero since the current App Store only aggerates reviews of the current versions of the software. The clamp-down should have a positive net effect on the App Store ecosystem.

Two other big omissions of the algorithmic purge on the app store has been the removal of the Top charts tab (demoting it to 2nd click within individual categories) and removing trending searches in the search tab.

iOS 11 will also bring Apple Pay, which will allow users to send money to friends easily. With the update, Siri will now learn more about the users habits, giving it a deeper understanding of the user.

Apple recently unveiled iOS 11 to the world, providing a sneak preview of what people should expect with the iPhone 8 in September. If that results in more reviews - and reviews from users who aren't annoyed about switching apps - that's a good thing for developers, too.

Another potentially troublesome caveat to Core NFC is that it will only work with Apple's iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and newer devices. This has an App of the Day and a Game of the Day feature. Do you have a story for The Sun Online news team?
