    If you own a 16GB iOS device you should be prepared for many frustrating times ahead, times where you will be juggling apps to find space. That's because Apple has just increased the allotted size for developers to work with. Since the App Store made its debut in 2008, apps have been limited to 2GB in size, but Cupertino has now doubled that, giving developers 4GB to play with.

    The file size limit for downloads over cellular connection still sits at 100MB, which seems very low these days with many apps higher than that. Apple says the increase to 4GB for Wi-Fi downloads means developers can use "more media in your submission and provide a more complete, rich user experience upon installation".
