Mobile developers can now respond to App Store user reviews in iOS 10.3

Developers can now respond to reviews left on their games and apps as part of new changes in Apple's iOS 10.3 update.

Apple has also released a guide for developers on how to respond to reviews. It states that reviews can be sorted and filtered on the developer end to make it easier to find top-priority feedback to respond to.

The feature was first seen in January 2017, and is something that Google Play has had for a long time already.

File it away

iOS 10.3 also introduces a new file system, the APFS, which is reportedly freeing up space on devices with the update. Forbes reports that entire gigabytes have been opened up.

Apple engineer Renaud Lienhart also tweeted that iOS 10.3 will likely feel smoother and faster due to the fact that animations have been tweaked and shortened for better performance.

The update also comes with a number of smaller improvements, such as support for finding AirPods with the Find my iPhone app, and new additions to Siri.
