App Store Downloads Have Room to Breathe as Apple Doubles Their Accepted Size

Posted by Jessica Fisher on February 13th, 2015

Pocket Gamer reports that Apple has decided to allow developers more room for their downloads; bringing the maximum size of iPhone and iPad apps from 2GB to 4GB.

Apple's site said this on the topic:

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. Please keep in mind that this change does not affect the cellular network delivery size limit of 100 MB.

This is a huge deal, as games and apps can now have double the amount of content - but of course those with 16GB devices are going to fill their libraries a lot faster.

+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

An update has arrived for ESPN's iOS app (Formerly 'ESPN SportsCenter'), bringing in further device support, a redesign, and the introduction of ESPN Now.

The app now takes advantage of the bigger iPad screen, with scores and news displayed at the same time. iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners will also be happy to hear that the app has been adapted to make full use of their bigger displays. The addition of ESPN Now, meanwhile, allows users to swipe to the right to access photos, videos, and social media content from ESPN. The cricket fans out there (insert obligatory 'C'mon England!' comment here) will also find that support for the upcoming Cricket World Cup has been added, bringing in video clips and scores from the 50 over contest to the app.

The updated ESPN app is available to download now for free.
