Apple raises download limit to 100 MB over cellular in iOS 7


Apple raises download limit to 100 MB over cellular in iOS 7

After the public release of iOS 7, there have already been changes made to the App Store. First there was a new design section, and now Apple has also increased the exiting per app download for cellular use from 50 MB to 100 MB. 

Downloading over the limit will still require a Wi-Fi connection. This is however a significant upgrade as per app limit at the start was only set on 10 MB. Apple later increased it to 25 MB before finally making it 50 MB in 2012. The new upgrade applies to media content such as movies, podcasts and TV shows. There’s no need to change preferences on the part of the user.

Perhaps Apple increased the limit because the binaries for the app are going to increase pretty soon as the 64-bit and 32-bit code have been combined. Apple also invited app developers to start optimizing app codes to support the iPhone 5s A7 chip processor.

Apple says building apps is easy as the Xcode tool will automatically generate binaries that will work on 64-bit and 32-bit devices. 64-binaries will also be documented by Apple next month. The company also said that the apps will be designed in a way that includes both 32-bit and 64-bit code.

Do you download apps over cellular network? Are you happy with the upgrade? Feel free to leave comments.
