Apple have recently released the new iPhone 6s and alongside it have released iOS 9.
The only problem is they’ve also added the feature called ‘Wifi Assist’ – basically if you’ve got poor/intermittent Wifi coverage it will use your 3G/4G Data allowance to keep your internet connection connected.
Ideal for anyone with unlimited data plans but for those on limited 500MB, 1GB per month tariffs you risk going over those limits especially if you’ve got poor wifi
How to fix it?
- Turn the feature off (scroll down for how-to-guide)
- Get a better Wifi Router > N66U is what we use
