hi everybody Liz from Apple toolbox here
0:13
like me many of you try to use Wi-Fi whenever you can
0:17
when connecting your iphone or ipad to the internet but there are times when we
0:21
just don't have access to Wi-Fi and we have no choice but to connect using our
0:26
mobile carriers data plan
0:29
we all know it's a good idea to keep an eye on our data use
0:36
but how exactly do we do that in this video I'm going to walk us through some
0:41
tips on how to track our data and we'll look at changing some settings to limit
0:47
our cellular data usage so let's get to it
0:52
first it's really important to see on our device how much data we are actually
0:58
using so go to settings and select cellular scroll down until you see your
1:06
cellular data usage
1:09
this gives you a real-time picture of your current data use
1:14
if that number is getting a little too close to your limit
1:18
there are a few things we can do to limit how your device uses your data .
1:23
one of the easiest things to do is limit which apps use cellular data stay in the
1:31
cellular menu and scroll down to the section use cellular data for here you
1:39
turn on and off each apps ability to connect to cellular data all your apps
1:46
are listed
1:47
so you get to decide by sliding to the right to turn on or sliding to the left
1:52
to turn off if you're worried about your data use
1:56
it's a good idea to turn off some of your data hogs like the app store
2:02
facetime photos maybe even google maps and any other app that you normally use
2:09
when only connecting via Wi-Fi
2:12
another feature to check is Wi-Fi assist this feature connects you automatically
2:17
to cellular when the Wi-Fi connection is bad
2:20
you may want to turn this feature off especially if you are nearing your data
2:26
limit
2:26
next let's adjust any push notifications that might use cellular data i really
2:33
dislike notifications
2:35
they interrupt me too much so I tend to have these off to adjust your
2:41
notifications
2:42
go to settings and select notifications at the top of the menu
2:48
look under notification style and select an appt
2:52
to turn notifications off slide the allow notification to the left and off
2:58
position decide which notifications are important to you leave those on
3:06
turn all the rest off one of the biggest invisible data hogs is background app
3:13
refresh this feature allows apps to update information automatically even
3:20
when they are actively running on screen
3:22
great idea but it uses data and it uses battery
3:27
not good so we really need to proactively manage this feature
3:33
let's take a look at what apps are set to refresh
3:37
i'm guessing some of you will be surprised to see how many third-party
3:41
apps are refreshing to get there
3:45
go to settings select general and select background app refresh here we have the
3:54
choice to either turn this feature completely off for all apps or we can
4:00
pick and choose which apps for fresh choose whatever works for you take a
4:06
close look and decide if you really need that app to continually refresh
4:11
if not turn it off it seems that I am constantly updating apps
4:18
I don't think a day goes by without the App Store showing some update is
4:22
available
4:23
I love to update my apps but really
4:27
this should only happen when I'm connected to Wi-Fi so here's a real easy
4:33
one
4:34
go to Settings scroll down to app and iTunes stores and turn cellular data off
4:43
by sliding to the left and off position
4:46
that's it
4:50
finally if you are leaving your home country or if your carrier charges for
4:56
data roaming
4:57
let's manage your data roaming feature
5:00
this is pretty straightforward go to settings select cellular and at the top
5:07
of the menu slide data roaming to the left and our position
5:15
I hope these tips help you better manage your data plan and avoid those
5:20
outrageous overage charges
