iPhone apps and games can now be up to 4GB big!

There's some good news for iOS developers and those looking for higher quality games alike: Apple has increased the size limit of apps on the App Store from 2GB to 4GB. From Apple:

The size limit of an app package submitted through iTunes Connect has increased from 2 GB to 4 GB, so you can include more media in your submission and provide a more complete, rich user experience upon installation. Please keep in mind that this change does not affect the cellular network delivery size limit of 100 MB.

While this change will mostly effect game developers, allowing them to use higher quality assets in their games, Apple notes that developers and users will still have to contend with the 100MB cellular download limit per app.
