With the release of iOS 5.1 Apple raised the App Store's built-in cap on cellular downloads up to 50MB. That was back in 2012, and since then Apple's entire mobile product line has been equipped with LTE while the cap has stayed the same. As spotted by CNET, today's launch of iOS 7 raises that limit up to 100MB. That means users will be able to download more apps and particularly lengthy podcasts while they're out and about. Of course, if you want to watch that latest episode of Breaking Bad, you'll still need to turn to Wi-Fi.
