As the betas for Apple’s latest mobile OS continue to roll out, we continue to see a lot of changes (yes YouTube app, I’m looking at you). The latest comes in the form of some back end speed improvements, specifically with App Store updates.
BlogdoiPhone is suggesting that Apple could be introducing “delta updates”, essentially only downloading what has changed in the app since the last version instead of having to download a whole new version as is the case now. This is also how Apple currently updates iOS over the air. Here is a video of the process in action!
If this is indeed how Apple plans to change its update process, I’m sure most users would count it as a welcome addition, I know I certainly would. Perhaps this would even get rid of the whole “I know you really want to download me, but guess what? You need to be on Wi-Fi” debacle. That is something I’m sure that nobody would miss.
