iOS 9.3 Wi-Fi Assist Update Shows Exact Data Usage



One of the most controversial features that Apple has introduced in recent months has been, without doubt, the support for Wi-Fi. In theory, this new function is to collect certain information using our data plan but we are connected to a Wi-Fi network, but only if the Wi-Fi network is going at such a slow speed that can not perform the required action. Apple also ensures that assistance Wi-Fi does not work for heavy downloads, but it only serves to, for example, pick up the mail or visit social networks.

The problem is that although Apple denies it, many users have complained that support for Wi-Fi has consumed many megabytes of your data plan and, at times, have come to far surpass the amount of data retained with your operator with the expenditure that this entails. To avoid further unpleasant surprises, Apple has introduced a novelty in the first beta of iOS 9.3 will allow us to know how much data consumed Assistance Wi-Fi throughout.


To view the previous screen access we have to go to Settings / General/mobile data and slide to the bottom. As you can see, it is consumed under the name in Spanish puts Assistance Wi-Fi.

Any change that helps us control what we consume is well received, but would still be insufficient. When Wi-Fi Assistance, the color of the Wi-Fi icon changes color, but this is something that even Apple is responsible for disseminating and users can easily view connects. I know many will say that when someone consumes all your data because of this feature, the user and the user is the only culprit, but no one can deny me that a function like this should warn more clearly when activated. A good idea would be, though it was annoying, appeared a popup warning that you are connecting. We may accept or cancel the connection. Another way might be less intrusive to warn us in this same way, but each X megabytes consumed.

The downside of not receiving a clear warning that we can see how much we spent when it is too late. In any case, it is better to know how much data you’ve consumed that go completely blind.  (Via: MacRumors)
