iOS Tip 122 - Avoid Unwanted Cellular Useage

Turn Off iOS 9 Wi-Fi Assist to Avoid Unwanted Cellular Usage

Hidden deep in iOS 9 is a setting that Apple intended to improve your iPhone experience. Called Wi-Fi Assist, it enables iOS 9 to use cellular data automatically when Wi-Fi connectivity is poor. That’s a nice idea, but it also means that your iPhone (or cellular iPad) may use lots of expensive cellular data when you’re not expecting it to. If you worry about cellular overage charges, turn this feature off in Settings > Cellular > Wi-Fi Assist (it’s near the bottom).
