This is the trick that cell phone companies do NOT want you to know about!
The feature is called “Wi-Fi Assist,” and it kicks in when you’re logged on to a Wi-Fi network but the signal is weak or slow. Your phone will then use your data to boost the speed of your device, without even telling you.
This may sound like a good idea in theory, but it’s actually costing Apple users hundreds of dollars. Here’s how you can turn off Wi-Fi Assist on your phone:
- Go to Settings
- Enter the “Cellular” menu
- Scroll to the bottom
- Toggle off “Wi-Fi Assist”
If you follow these steps, you’ll be saving yourself TONS of money!
