An unofficial 500-app limit exists in the current iOS 6 beta, a small consulting firm says. The company claims to have confirmed the cap with Apple. Beyond that limit, users will allegedly start experiencing slow boots, automatic reboots, and other problems. At 1,000 apps, devices are said to fail to boot entirely, forcing owners to restore them.
Well, first of all, it’s a BETA. Second, if you have more than 500 apps on your phone, you have other issues beyond your iPhone having slow boots, reboots, etc.
