How To Switch Off The New iPhone Feature That Is Causing Phone Bills To Soar

Like many people Apple is my crack. I am always dreaming of the next product I can get my mitts on, even if I have the previous edition, because the 5S is totally different form the 5c. If I could I’d have my very own Apple shop in my house, but unless you are Steve Wozniak or a multimillionaire you obviously wouldn’t be able to afford it.

Well if you’ve downloaded the latest major iteration of iOS recently, iOS 9, then you might want to check your phone bill because there’s a new feature that could see yours skyrocketing. The latest software update has had a bumpy launch and it is costing people with cheaper limited data plans a shit tonne of money. Here’s how to kick this problem in the butt…

With iOS9 the default setting ‘Wi-Fi Assist’ will automatically switch off your Wi-Fi and switch on 4G if the Wi-Fi you are using is too slow. Obviously this is bad news if your data plan is limited. But don’t worry it’s simple to turn off just open up your settings.

Find ‘Wi-Fi assist’ hidden all the way at the bottom and swipe that bad boy right so that it is disabled.
