Thanks to a new update to TestFlight, beta testers are now able to download pre-release apps up to 150MB without relying on a Wi-Fi connection.
Apple raised the size limit for apps that could be downloaded over cellular to 150MB back in September 2017. While the change affected apps on the App Store, it still didn’t include beta apps distributed through TestFlight.
That is no longer the case with version 2.0.1 of TestFlight that is now available on the App Store. The update brings the download limit in parity with all other apps on the App Store.
Download limit aside, Apple also included support for Smart Invert Colors, which is an accessibility feature that comes close to replicating an official “dark mode” in iOS.
If you have a 3D Touch capable device, there is a new 3D Touch peek view that now includes a snippet of text outlining “What to Test” for that particular beta app.
The full changelog
- This update includes support for Smart Invert Colors and a revised 3D Touch peek view that includes “What to Test”.
- The cellular data limit is now 150MB, increased from 100MB.
- Small bug fixes and other UI improvements were made.
TestFlight is available for free on the App Store, and is an easy way for developers to test upcoming version of their apps.
