Have you ever felt like you need to curb your phone usage as you come to the end of your monthly data cap? Even though with Sky Mobile, you can mix your plan and save your data, we can often feel as though we're at the end of our tethers when it comes to data usage.
What can we do to reduce the amount of data that we use each month, so we're not left scrambling for a connection?
To see how much data you've used for each app:
Go to Settings > Mobile Data
Or Settings > Cellular.
If you're using an iPad, you may see Settings > Mobile Data.
Scroll down to find out which apps are using mobile data.
If you don't want a specific app to use your data, turn it off for that app by flicking the green toggle. There is currently no way to set up data alerts for IPhone. You can install 3rd party apps for this, but many users prefer not to.
To see and alter how much data you use:
Go to Settings > Network & Internet > Data Usage
Tap Mobile data usage > Scroll down > tap the app you want to alter
To set data alerts:
Go to Data warning & limit > turn on Set data warning.
Go to Data warning > Enter a number >Tap Set
Open Netflix, tap the triple-line button in the top left
Scroll down and tap "App Settings"
Tap "Cellular Data Usage" and toggle off Set Automatically.
Select either "Low" or "Medium" to watch lower-quality streams when on cellular.
