Apple has finally decided to increase the download limit for the App Store. Previously, if you had to download an app, podcast or any other content on your iOS device using the network connection, you would have to put up with the 20MB download limit or choose to download it over Wi-Fi instead.

Now with the launch of the new iPad, Apple has relaxed this restriction a bit and will now allow you to download content up to 50MB over your network connection, although anything beyond that will still require Wi-Fi. That should be enough for most apps, podcasts and songs but it would have been nice if Apple had increased it a bit further or at least provided the option to remove the limit for those on unlimited data plans.
