Wi-Fi assist automatically uses cellular data when a wi-fi connection is poor, even if the i Phone is connected to a local wireless network.This is great in that your internet experience is more reliable, but it’s not so great in that it means you’ll undoubtedly be using more cellular data if you’re on a cruddy wi-fi network.Turning this off will help: Turning this off just means you’ll need to connect to a wi-fi network to transmit files and data between the i Phone and i Cloud Drive.
The solution is to turn this off: Wi-Fi Assist alone has been attributed to unusually heavy cellular data usage with i OS 9, but it’s by no means the only culprit.
i Cloud Drive is a really great addition to i OS 9, but if you use it often and have a ton of files going back and forth, it can be fairly data hungry.
The development of advanced video codecs, more powerful CPUs, and high-bandwidth Internet telecommunication services in the late 1990s allowed videophones to provide high quality low-cost colour service between users almost anyplace in the world that the Internet is available.
Although not as widely used in everyday communications as audio-only and text communication, useful applications include sign language transmission for deaf and speech-impaired people, distance education, telemedicine, and overcoming mobility issues.
More popular videotelephony technologies use the Internet rather than the traditional landline phone network, even accounting for modern digital packetized phone network protocols, and even though videotelephony software commonly runs on smartphones.
By reducing the need to travel to bring people together, this technology also contributes to reductions in carbon emissions, thereby helping to reduce global warming.
But, because of the Wi-Fi Assist feature, a good amount of that 1.3GB of data was offloaded onto the cellular connection when the wi-fi connection was less capable.
That’s pretty heavy for usage for just under a four day period, and for users with a normal cellular plan they could quickly eat through their allotment.
It is also used in commercial and corporate settings to facilitate meetings and conferences, typically between parties that already have established relationships.
