How to Remove 200 MB Download Limit on iOS 13

Apple has been putting a limit on downloading apps over cellular data to save users from huge mobile bills. Up to iOS 12, the download limit was set to 200MB for cellular data. But with the release of iOS 13, Apple now allows users to remove the 200 MB download limit over cellular or mobile data.

This is a very welcoming move from Apple as mobile data rates have become quite affordable across the world. And, most of the users are not bothered about cellular data. So, there is no point in restricting the app download size to 200MB over cellular/mobile data anymore.

If your Apple device is running iOS 13 or iPadOS 13, you can easily override the 200MB download limit by changing settings. So, in this tutorial, we are going to explain, how you can remove the 200 MB download limit in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13.
