    I was able to download 3 apps today over LTE that were all over 200 MB each. It gave me the warning I hit ok and then it downloaded. Is this because I'm on a T-Mobile unlimited LTE plan? I thought I wasn't allowed to download them over 100 MB. I am running 8.2 beta 4

    I doubt your phone knows what data plan you have. Maybe it's a new feature in 8.2?

    It knows I'm on T-Mobile so I can get wifi calling.

    I have iOS 8.1.2 on Verizon and it does not let me download anything over 100MB on cellular. I thought this was an iOS restriction.

    100 MB apps


    Do you hit ok or cancel? Maybe it's a new change on 8.2

    Updates or new apps?

    If it was updates, those are delta updates and the size is merely the total size of the app but not the update itself. So it will allow you to download what appears to be large apps but they are really not.

    I don't get an OK or cancel. It says it is over 100MB and will be paused and downloaded later when wifi is available.

    This is the correct answer if you're referring to updates. I hate that the App Store shows the full app size for updates. That should really be changed.

    Ok so that's what it is. They really should just show the update size.
