Have you ever tried to download an app from the App Store without being connected to a Wi-Fi network and couldn’t because the maximum download limit was 150MB?
Although many apps used in everyday life are not that heavy, Apple sets a limit on the download size of a particular app, podcast, games and movies over 3G / 4G (LTE) networks – which was 150MB. Good, was…
This week, Apple raised that threshold to 200MB, allowing users to download slightly larger files to their iPhones and iPads from mobile data, such as games and content from the iTunes Store. The last time this download “quota” went up was in September 2017, when it went from 100MB to 150MB.
Such a limit is often “ridiculed” as Apple does not offer any option for the user to change this – or even disable this type of restriction; after all, there are operators that offer plans with unlimited mobile data.
In this sense, the alert would be better implemented as a warning, in order to inform the user that he is about to download a large file, but including a “Continue download” button so that everything is completed. Who knows in the future, right?
