    If you have the memory, then yes. If you have limited memory then no.

    It's all personal preference. If you have the storage space.

    It's definitely okay if you have the space; but why would you want a lot of apps?

    Don't worry, installing apps won't slow down your iPhone as is the case with android devices. Enjoy your iPhone. ๐Ÿ˜Š
    P.S. I currently have 112 apps installed on my iPhone and 176 on my iPod touch 5th gen.

    Just curious why bring android into this conversation that was intended to be an apple question.

    And which android are you talking about? There are many androids that are quite slow and many that are very fast

    See I like my iPhone 6 cause it's great for me. I'd never however call a galaxy s5, note 4 or G3 slow or garbage because I'd look foolish

    Grouping android devices into one category doesn't work they have so many different ranged phones from low end to high end.

    To answer this question though no you shouldn't have to worry about having lots of apps just make sure not to have a ton running in the background when they aren't being used

    Cos that's the reason why most of the people ask this question; my experience so far at least. And I've been a Note2 n S4 user.
    No hard feeling for android lovers though. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    So by coming out and saying it's better than an android is helping the question in any sort of way?

    That's the thing, i never said which is better as it depends on one's definition of good and bad so is purely subjective.
    I said it to convey across the point that if op has been an android user and asking therefore, he needs not worry. I was also under the same impression when moved to iPhone having used blackberry and android for yrs.

    The OP's question was in regard to having lots of apps on installed on a phone, and not an Android vs iPhone debate so let's keep the conversation on topic please. Thanks...

    Won't hurt at all as long as you have the storage space for it. A couple of things to keep in mind though:

    - Many apps store data in iCloud, so you may run out of space there more quickly as well.
    - Some apps request to run in the background. Make sure you manage these permissions to ensure that your battery life stays nominal.

    Generally, apps won't slow your phone. They will some if they use functions and services such as location, background app refresh, and whatnot.

    I had roughly 325 apps on my 4S until I recently restored it. It was fine.

    Hey @H A W K, @userberry was explaining that he wouldn't have to fear a slower device by installing many apps like Android is lagging at.
    It doesn't matter how fast or powerfull the Android phone is, it will always slow down because Android apps are almost always running in the background on a unrooted Android phone.
    Take the app Google+, it was taking more than 75MB of my RAM storage without ever used it or opened it.
    So this is why he brings Android to the discussion i think.

    Yeah ok. I've faced the fact the android vs Apple thing is pointless to stop I'm just gonna stop being involved in them because it's stupid. If you notice your phone lagging hardcore because of apps on a galaxy you have good senses
