Apple has released the next beta version of its upcoming iOS 9 for the developers and the testing process has already kicked off. The latest beta version of the latest mobile operating system from the Cupertino-based technology giant brings many new developments within the iOS 9 Beta 4.
However, there is one change that is going to be loved by app developers who have posted their apps in Apple’s App Store.
When Apple released the first beta version of the iOS 9 earlier this year, it gave a free hand to check the performance of various apps available in App Store being within the prerelease version of the iOS. Moreover, the developers were also allowed to post the app reviews based on their experiences in the prereleased operating software.
As a result of this option, the average rating of apps in the App Store went down drastically as developers couldn’t get the best performance and user experience due to the bug present in the beta versions of iOS 9.
However, when the developers and other iOS 9 users who downloaded the iOS 9 Beta 4 tried to post the app reviews, the option was disabled by default. It means the developers can test the app performance within the iOS 9 Beta 4 but they will not be able to post reviews and ratings in the App Store so the actual rating and image of the app can be unharmed.
This small move from Apple will definitely bring a sigh of relief for the app developers who have been hit by the bugs of iOS 9 beta versions.
