iOS 9 Has a Feature That Will Have You Say Yaaaaas
9/28/15 Update: Remember how everyone was super excited about “Wi-Fi Assist” on iOS 9 back when it debuted? Well, the new feature seems to be turning out to be more of a curse than a blessing, costing people hundreds and thousands of dollars on their monthly bill. To turn “Wi-Fi Assist” off to make sure your bill doesn’t skyrocket, here’s all you’ve gotta do: Go to Settings > Cellular > Wi-Fi Assist and slide the feature off. Your wallet will thank you!
iOS 9 wants to change all that. Apple released their iOS 9 beta 5 yesterday with a slew of nifty little updates (and if you haven’t checked out what iOS 9 is offering so far, you should here) including a new feature called “Wi-Fi Assist.” You just go to Settings > Cellular > Wi-Fi Assist and turn on this little tab. What it does is it ensure that the next time your phone is trying to hop on to a super slow network, it’ll automatically switch to using your data plan instead.
Now you never have to have your Kim Kardashian Hollywood game interrupted again.
