iOS developers were angry that Apple allowed iOS 9 beta users to post App Store reviews. That’s understandable. Pre-release software often doesn’t play nice with apps that haven’t been updated.

Thankfully, Cupertino has finally copped on to the problem and blocked users running the iOS 9 beta from spouting off about problems on the App Store.

A triumph for common sense! A defeat for total dicks who leave reviews based on bugs thrown up by betas!
