Help avoid hitting the limit on the new iPhone data plan
Authored by: asmeurer on Jun 04, '10 10:10:55AM

+1 for Apple putting sizes for App updates. It affects wifi users too (i.e., iPod touch users). The problem is, if you update your apps and there is a lot to download, and you need to go somewhere else where there isn't wifi, the wifi on your device will stay on and constantly look for a connection until it finishes updating, even if your device is asleep in your pocket. So it's a common occurrence for me: I update my apps, put my iPod touch in my pocket, go somewhere else, where there isn't wifi before it finishes, and the next time I look at my iPod, that battery is almost dead.
