Just a heads up… There’s a new feature in iOS9 that us data starved users need to know about — and turn off.

The feature is called “Wi-Fi Assist.” It will automatically switch to the cell network for data if it detects an inconsistent WiFi signal.

It’s a cool way to ensure you stay connected as you use your phone. But it can also eat up more data.

So to save your neck, and your data we’ve figured out how to switch it off!

  1. Open the settings icon on your iPhone

2.  Choose the Cellular menu.

 

3. Once inside the cellular menu scroll all the way to the bottom

4. Below your apps you will see the “WiFi Assist option” press the white button to turn it off

This is what it looks like when it’s off

And that’s it! Happy scrolling.
