Users of beta versions of Apple’s iOS software have in the past been able to leave reviews for apps, even if the apps weren’t optimized to work with the beta that the user was using, Apple has now put a stop to this.
People who ate running a beta version of iOS on their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch can no longer leave a review for an app.
This was spotted by developer Ryan Orbuch, who posted a picture on Twitter showing that beta users can no longer review apps, you can see the tweet below.
Finally — you can’t write App Store reviews from beta iOS. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/xu03SSi96k

In the past the majority of the reviews left on apps by people who were running beta versions of iOS were negative, mainly because the apps were not designed or optimized to work with these beta versions.
This is good news for app developers who will now only receive reviews for their apps on the actual versions of iOS that are available for everyone rather than iOS beta versions.
