With every iOS release by Apple, there is some hesitation that causes users to hang on the older version before switching to the newest version. The reason is bugs. No, not the creepy, crawling kind, but the kind that frustrate users to no end. While no major bugs are coming to the forefront in this update, there is a troubling update that can cost your BIG on your cell phone bill.
The update brought “Wi-Fi Assist” to the front of the cellular conversation. Per SimpleMost,
“When “Wi-Fi Assist” is enabled, your phone will automatically switch over to 4G (cellular coverage) if it thinks that your wi-fi is too slow. If you are on a limited data plan, then that could be bad news as your data could be used very quickly by watching a video or listening to music.”
Luckily, this could-be-expensive feature is easy to find and disable. Here’s a quick how-to:
- Open the Settings.
- Click on “Cellular”.
- Scroll down to “Wi-Fi Assist”.
- Toggle the button to turn it off.
This small adjustment can save your company hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars! If you have questions about saving your company money through the auditing, optimizing, or managing of your wireless services, please click here to contact The Bill Police.
