Apple Doubles Cellular Network Cap to 100MB for Downloads

Apple has quietly increased its cellular network cap for App Store downloads to 100MB, double of the previous 50MB limit, as noted by a MacRumors reader. Normally, for apps over 50MB, were prompted with a notification to connect to Wi-Fi in order to continue the download. That has all changed.

100mb

It was last March Apple raised the network download limit to 50MB, up from the previous 20MB limit introduced in February 2010 (prior to that, it was 10MB).
