Apple now approving larger apps

February 15, 2015

Apple announced last week that it will be increasing the maximum app size from 2 GB to 4 GB on the App Store. The extended limit will be useful for high-quality games which need the additional space to showcase improved special effects or longer game play.



Note from Apple: The size limit of an app package submitted through iTunes Connect has increased from 2 GB to 4 GB, so you can include more media in your submission and provide a more complete, rich user experience upon installation.

The 2 GB size limit has been around since the App Store first launched on July 9, 2008. Last week’s new 4 GB limit marks the first ever size increase. The increase will also help pave the way for higher-resolution displays and the additional performance benefits with iOS 9.

Although the maximum app size has now been increased to 4 GB, Apple is still enforcing the 100 MB over the air requirement which was introduced in 2013.

Bringing Agile Home

My life often resembles a game of Whack-A-Mole. The moment I complete one task two more pop up. To avoid getting behind, I jump on new tasks almost immediately. Then at some point along the way my wife will innocently ask if I’ve scheduled my appointment with the Secretary of State. Realizing that an up-to-date driver’s license takes priority over a squeaky hinge, I put down my tools and book my online appointment.
