How to Remove Your Ratings for the Apple App Store

How to Remove Your Ratings for the Apple App Store, shoregeek.com

Have you ever left a review for an app and then later wanted to remove that rating? For example, maybe you gave a five-star rating for an app, but after further use, you decided you wanted to give a three-star rating?

Or maybe you gave an app a one-star rating, but after a while, you decide that the app deserved a five-star rating? With just a few taps, you can remove your ratings for any app on your iPhone or iPad.

After removing the rating, you can leave a new rating by heading to the App Store page for that app.

Directions to Remove App Ratings
