Apple ups the ante that allows apps up to 20MB in size to be downloaded over 3G
Although Apple really didn't have a major part during the events that were unfolding over at MWC, they quietly executed a move that seemingly continues to show their commitment in moving forward. After the rush of allowing VoIP services to go live, now they're doing the same somewhat with their process of downloading apps. In an unfashionably quiet move by Apple, they have doubled the size of the “over the air” app download cap to 20MB. That's definitely a nice gesture when you consider how frustrating it is sometimes to snoop out a Wi-Fi network to download something on the App Store. It may have been overlooked by most users, but it's also affecting the download limit on the iPhone's iTunes app as well to 20MB – which is up from the previous 12MB download cap. AT&T customers are already seeing this with even other markets like Germany and Canada getting the much needed treatment. It definitely goes to show how Apple is slowly opening up and hearing out some of its customers surrounding certain areas of improvement.
