If you’re one of the millions of iPhone owners who have already installed iOS 9, chances are you are pretty happy with it. But there’s something you might not be aware of…
If you tend to use Wi-Fi a lot because you have a limited data plan, you could be in for a major shock when your next cellular phone bill arrives.
By default, a new iOS 9 feature called “Wi-Fi Assist” automatically switches your phone from Wi-Fi to your carrier’s 4G network whenever it detects a weak Wi-Fi signal.
The idea behind Wi-Fi Assist is a good one, but if your phone is on a limited data plan you could potentially end up owing a LOT of money when your next cellular bill comes out. And by a LOT, I mean potentially thousands of dollars.
If you think this situation might apply to you, I recommend turning off Wi-Fi Assist right now! Here’s how:
1 – Tap Settings.
2 – Tap Cellular.
3 – Toggle the “Wi-Fi Assist” setting to Off.
That takes care of the easy part. Now you might want to contact your cellular company and ask if you have been racking up a massive bill due to excessive data use. If so, you might be able to negotiate a reduction in the amount you owe.
