Apple iOS developers of the world, rejoice: the size limit for your apps has doubled, from 2GB to 4GB.
According to Apple’s Developer website, “this change does not affect the cellular network delivery size limit of 100MB.” But for anyone whose apps were perilously close to the 2GB limit, you can now increase your app’s content without worrying about bumping into that previous ceiling.
This increase was inevitable, given the growing sophistication and size of many games and business applications on the market. Better hardware and larger screens tempt developers to go as big as possible when designing everything from new features to strange creatures; sooner or later, Apple had to increase the size limit to accommodate them.
