Apple increases the download limit to 200 MB over the data network — 2022
A few days after the start of WWDC 2019 from Apple they have decided increase in the App Store the download limit for applications and games through the data network. This will now allow us to download much larger applications without the need to connect to a WiFi network, being something that can be compared to computers, sinceit is faster to download files in Mac.
Until now from Apple they imposed a download limit of 150 MB, but now this limit has become 200 MB, something that surely accompanies the decision of many companies to offer us a greater amount of data in our mobile rates.
Apple allows downloading larger applications through the data network
Although, this decision is still very far from what many users expect, which is more freedom. This limit is imposed by Apple so that the user don't be forced to accidentally download a heavy app or game and end up affecting the data rate.
Although we believe that Apple should give users the opportunity to bypass this limitation, showing a simple warning of what the application or game weighs and asking for a confirmation from the user if they are sure to do so.
We are currently seeing how many telephone companies are choosing to offer unlimited data rates . For this type of user who has contracted these data rates, we believe that Apple should allow this limitation to be eliminated. It's a bit silly that if you have data 'to bore', we have a limitation imposed.
We hope that in the future, Apple will end up choosing to dispense with this limitation, or giving the user the option of continuing the download, warning in advance of the risks of seriously affecting their contracted data rate. Although we are seeing that this process can be very slow , because since 2017 we have not seen an increase in the download limit from 100 to 150 MB.
