    Hello all. New iPhone user, former Gnex user. Is it normal for apps to take a full minute or more to install? Usually on android it takes about ten seconds. iPhone 5 6.0.1 . I'm not trolling I swear be nice lol

    It depends on the size of the app and your connection speed, but yes, some apps can take that long to install.

    Thanks I was concerned. It's downloading them as fast as I'm used to, it's just the install time seems slow. Oh we'll if that's how it is that's how it is.

    Default Re: App install times

    I have noticed the same. Coming from an Android phone to the iphone 5 it does seem to take a bit but I have noticed that sometimes while installing an app it may freeze up or have double icons until I reboot the phone. Or it could be because I have seen the iPhone 4s commercials in which the apps download in a blink of an eye despite it being Verizon. :-).

    All in all I think the speeds have increased and it works seamlessly now. ie on par with my old android downloads.
