WiFi Assist is a new setting is meant to help your connectivity, but it could cost you money.

In Apple iOS 9, there’s a new feature called Wi-Fi Assist. When you’re using a spotty Wi-Fi connection, it switches over to cellular data. (Typically, your phone switches over to a cellular connection when Wi-Fi becomes unavailable. With Wi-Fi Assist, it kicks in when Wi-Fi meets what it deems as a “poor” connection.) If you have an unlimited data plan, it’s no big deal.

If you have a data cap or shared plan (most people do) you may unknowingly be using cellular data, and blow past your limit. That can cost money.

Here’s how to turn off Wi-Fi assist in iOS 9.

Access Wi-Fi Assist setting

  1. Tap the Settings app to launch it.
  2. Tap Cellular.
  3. Scroll all the way to the bottom, past the list of apps that use cellular data.
  4. You should find a setting for Wi-Fi Assist. You can switch off.
