    Maybe I'm up to date with the betas. But I thought the button is under settings/iTunes & App Stores. I even found a screenshot from cnet. But I couldn't find it after update to 10.3.

    It's not been activated by Apple yet.

    I'm confused. Why does this need to be "activated" remotely? Isn't it supposed to be part of the update we just installed?

    Probably some server-side components that are needed in order for it to actually work.

    I was looking for the exact same thing! I really don't like the pop-ups which are always when I don't have time for them, so this feature was something I was really looking forward to. (Who even writes a review when being asked for it like this...?)

    From what I'm reading on the web right now it seems that the button is cancelled in favor of asking for a review for a maximum of three times per year per app. So that doesn't help with 85 app's currently installed...

    Probably because developers wanted to keep the option, but I'm still disappointed that we continue to be nagged with these app review requests :(.

    I suspect that the reason it hasn't been enabled yet is because Apple isn't yet requiring developers use the new API. They don't want people turning on a switch, then getting nagged by an app that hasn't been updated and wondering why the switch didn't do what they expected it to.

    It's only once Apple forces all developers to use the new API and starts enforcing it with app review that it'll be worth having the switch there, otherwise you'll change the setting but still get nagged by apps that show their own messages rather than using the new review API.

    This makes sense. However this reminds me that I will need to update all the apps to take advantage of this button which is a bit let down. I have a 6S+ and my wife has a 6+. Both devices are running smoothly on IOS 10.3 so I'm considering keep them this way and also refrain from updating apps as newer version generally tends to be slower. I was hoping to they can last one or two more years so I don't have to shell out $800+for "8", whose current rumored features doesn't persuade me to upgrade all things considered.
