Don't install too many — iOS 6 can't handle it.

    OK, maybe–just maybe–if you have 500 apps on any device you need to take a deep breath, step back, and ask yourself “Why DO I have 500 apps?”

    Slow news day yeah?

    interesting I have 518 apps so over 500 and I haven’t had any problem and I’m running iOS 6 Beta 3.

    Regarding everyones comments @PGEddington @Tallest_Skil how you figure? maybe need apps cause I’m a developer and also need alot for work… I have 518 apps but almost 400 are actually work related so only have a little over 100 for my own personal use.

    Its a known problem. Does it matter why/if somebody has over 500 apps? Its money in Apples pocket either way unless of course they are 500 free apps.

  • MichaelMuc

    Not more than 500? Piece of crap!
    Only Chuck Norris can handle more than 500 apps ;-)

    Not a big deal for me. I currently have 55 apps on my iPhone and I think I only use 30 of them.
    Yea, I’ll do some cleaning some day of these, 55 are too many apps.

    I have 221 apps on my iPad, and the only reason for that is that I have a 9 year old that likes games…..sooo about 70 of those apps are games with 10 more that are educational. I periodically go through my apps and delete ones that I thought were cool and would get a lot of use, but in reality never get used. I don’t see the logic in having apps just to have apps. I would rather have room for content and apps that I really use. BTW, I have an 3rd gen 64gb 4G/LTE iPad.

    in other news, the guy who discovered this limitation recently learned there’s a thing out there called “women.” he plans to investigate further.

    Someone must be bored to have 500 applications on their phone. I have 52.

    Darn! A five hundred app limit?! Judging from how many people are using their phones while driving, at stop lights, while dining with the family (all of whom are also on their phones), in movie theaters and simply tightly clutching their phones while doing the normal activities of life… the five hundred limit could really be a deal killer. Or a family-time killer, traffic killer, enjoyment killer and even a social killer.

    Luckily Apple still provides a Delete App function, just in case someone hits the limit.

    Sorry for the rant.
