As apps for the iPad mini and other iOS devices become more complex and sophisticated, they also tend to take up more space. While simple programs such as the Twitter app or Instagram might be 10 to 15 megabytes (MB), games such as the various Call of Duty spin-offs available on the Apple App Store can be up to several gigabytes in size, taking up substantial amounts of your device's available memory.
Because downloading these apps takes so long, and requires so much bandwidth from your cell provider, Apple had previously limited such downloads to 50 MB if you were connected to a 3G or 4G service. But according to Mashup, Apple has reportedly increased that limit from 50 MB to 100 MB, opening the door for much larger programs to be purchased over the air and downloaded immediately.
This is a big deal for anyone who has ever had to deal with the unfortunate situation of needing an app immediately but not having a WiFi connection over which to download it. However, it also is an indication of why tablets and smartphones do not provide a complete computing solution. Rather, technology users are best equipped to tackle their computing needs to making use of both a tablet for mobile purposes and a customized laptop for those situations when more complex software and programs are needed. PortableOne carries a lineup of both iOS devices and Apple Mac notebooks, which, when combined, give customers a comprehensive digital experience so that they can take advantage of the power of OS X and the convenience of iOS.
