When you’re using your iPhone as a computer replacement, you’ll need a lot of apps to get that level of productivity. Between playing games, productivity tasks, streaming videos online, and the like, you’ll find a few apps can go a long way. However, apps are not unlimited, and the limit is actually going to be reduced substantially in the next upgrade of iOS. Apple’s iOS 6 is going to limit iPhone and iPad users to 500 apps.
“When a user has over 500 apps on their iDevice, they will start having slow booting, auto-rebooting, and other issues due to the OS rejecting the number of apps,” says user ‘macjeff’ on the Mid Atlantic Consulting blog. ”Get up to 1,000 and your device will not even boot, forcing you to restore.”
The current limit of iPhone apps right now is 2160, if you use a variety of tricks to max out your app capacity. Of course, the limit at the moment is mostly speculative, as it was not this way in the first three beta releases of iOS6 and can still be changed before release date.Technorati Tags: app limit in iOS, apple, apps, ios 6 app limit, ios 6 apps, ios 6 leaks, iOS app limit, iphone, iphone app limit, leaks, macjeff, phone apps, smart phones, smartphone apps, smartphones
