Apple has never been a fan of large file downloads over data, the reason behind Apple’s download limit is that it stops users from accidentally consuming up all of their data allowance.

The last time Apple increased the download limit over cellular was in 2017, when the download limit was raised from 100MB to 150MB. The change came with the arrival of iOS 11 , which also introduced a redesigned App Store.

The 150MB limit was introduced following the iOS 11 release in September 2017. Before that, the maximum size of an iOS app or app update that you could download over 3G or 4G cellular networks was capped at 100MB.

This 150MB download limit pissed lots of users off because the Android has no such caps in place so users are free to spend their whole monthly data downloading large apps if they wish to do so. On iOS, you could never do that due to the download limit, which made sense in the early iPhone days when the whole mobile thing was new to people.

But this week the Cupertino giant has unexpected increased its mobile data download limit for iPhones and iPads to 200MB from the previous capacity of 150MB.
This means iOS users can now download larger apps and games from the App Store. Larger files such as films can also be downloaded from the iTunes Store, in addition to video podcasts.

Before this update, lots of people do trick the App Store into downloading apps and g0ames over 150MB in size over a cellular data connection:
I hope your device is with you….Just kidding, I know you are using it to surf right now lol…
How can I do these:
Step 1: Make sure that you are not connected to a Wi-Fi Network.
Step 2: Locate the application exceeds the 150MB which you want to download from the App Store.

We are currently in a world where Smartphone users have unlimited data or lots of it.
We will also see what Apple does next year when it launches the first 5G iPhones which will increase data consumption.
Also the faster data speeds mean you’ll be able to download a Full-HD movie in just 10 seconds, but if Apple doesn’t remove its download cap, you won’t even be able to start the download, ultimately limiting one of 5G's biggest benefits

Whats your say on this?
