Apple's newly published update to its App Store policies officially designates tipping to content creators as in-app purchases, with Apple keeping 30 percent of the revenue as commission.
You also might want to spread the word if you're concerned, informing your less tech-savvy friends and family to keep their guard up when browsing and selecting apps to download - at least until Apple is able to figure out what's going on and put an end to it. It allows developers to ask for ratings within their apps using the standard Apple-approved review prompt message, rather than being redirected to the App Store like the old system. An app can only display the prompt three times a year, regardless of how often it's been updated.
The new App Review guidelines compel developers to use the official in-app rating UI that was added in iOS 10.3, and plans to "disallow custom review prompts" in the future. On the consumer front, it allows the user to leave a rating from one star to five without leaving the app. Custom prompts would push users to the App Store, which was frustrating and pointless, but now users can decide whether or not to leave a rating, press a button and get right back into the action. If a user does go through, a Touch ID prompt box pops up for authentication, but states that the user will pay $99.99 for an automatically renewing seven-day subscription. This, however, does have some downsides to consumers as well.

That being said, iOS 11 will bring one very nice feature to developers. It also serves as a check against nuking one's review score, if a lot of users who previously reviewed can't be prompted again for a year.
The iOS 11 is now available only to developer account holders.
