Apples new file size limit lets you download 200MB apps without WiFi

first_img Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? A new download limit has arrived. Apple With Apple’s WWDC 2019 right around the corner, the company has made a change to its App Store that could make downloading apps a bit easier. But those on limited data plans should be wary.Apple’s cellular download limits for apps increased this week from 150MB to 200MB in the App Store. The change was spotted earlier by 9to5Mac. This means users will not see a message telling them to connect to Wi-Fi to download apps below the new file size limit. The last time Apple changed the download limits was September 2017, bumping it up from 100MB to 150MB. It tends to make the change every few years as cellular data services improve, such as in 2012 when the jump from 3G to 4G spurred the company to increase the data limit to a whopping 50MB. With 5G networks currently being tested by T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, the iPhone maker seems to be prepping for the jump in speed coming. Apple didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment.  Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.
