    Just wondering if a software update can change the setting to allow us to install apps on the mem card?
    Is it possible or is this hardwired in the hardware?

    I don't think you'll ever be able to run programs from an sd card because transfer rates may be inadequate. The only exception I can see is if the phone would be able to differentiate between types of cards-that is, if the device can see if you have a class 10 card (highest speed) then you would be okay but anything less is only good for storage.

    It is possible. Will have to be done for the 8S, otherwise OTA updates on it will become near impossible to install.

    Theoretically it could be done, but I don't think it ever will be. As was mentioned, it can negatively impact app performance. Also they are trying to get away from SD cards in general because they are just an inelegant solution. Two sperate volumes and all, with different read/write speeds. They are just a temporary band-aid until NAND memory prices come down enough so that even budget phones can have a decent amount of memory.

    I think they will use mSD to install aps and also as swap file during OTA updates.
