iOS7 increases its wireless download limit to 100mb

Sometimes it can be a real hassle to retrieve your iPhone cable to transfer a bunch of new games and apps. Apple has become aware of how many people like to download on the go over the years, increasing the limit of how much data can be transfered bit by bit (heh). For the last year the limit has been 50mb, and while this has been great, the games and apps available are always becoming larger, and more robust. This calls for additional download capacity.

That must be why with their latest iOS update, Apple have increased the over-the-air download limit to 100mb. This will alleviate some of the pressure from those on the go who wish to engage in some new app grabbing.

Of course at home, your phone really should be connected to your wireless internet if you have it. It solves a lot of these problems.

Now I'd just like to know why you can't turn this artificial limitation off if you have an unlimited data plan.

This is a great post Dave! I would have never known about it unless you mentioned it here.

Ironically, due to a previous bug I just finally got the wireless sync to work this week on my iDevices and love it! I also have the highest internet plan available (which again ironically is 100MB/sec)
