Just a question: How many apps do you usually install on your iPhone or iPad? I usually try to limit the number of apps on my iDevice, considering the huge chunk of storage it consumes on my 16GB tablet. But some of you might want to install just about anything you want from the App Store. According to Mid Atlantic Consulting, devices running iOS 6 that have more than 500 apps installed on them will begin to boot slowly and experience some issues.
Ramping up the number of apps to 1000 will reportedly stop the device from booting. Mid Atlantic Consulting said that it tried to contact Apple to confront the issue. The firm argued that if Apple’s devices are expected to replace other smartphones, pocket gaming devices, remote controls, timers and more, Apple should make way for unlimited apps. “In iOS 6 betas 1-3, this is not possible, although it was in iOS 4 and iOS 5. Apple said they will be fixing this issue but it may not be in the next beta,” Mid Atlantic Consulting wrote on its blog.
