If you've upgraded to iOS 9, you should be aware that it comes with a new feature enabled by default that could make your next wireless bill a lot bigger.



Wi-Fi Assist automatically switches your phone from Wi-Fi to a cellular connection when the Wi-Fi signal is poor. That's helpful if you're in the middle of watching a video or some other task on the internet that you don't want interrupted by spotty Wi-Fi service.

"But this also means eating through your 500 MB data cap without knowing it," warns the IT department at McGill University in Montreal, which suggests that users may want to disable Wi-Fi Assist.

So how do you turn Wi-Fi Assist off?

Go into Settings.
Choose Cellular.
Scroll way down to Wi-Fi Assist.
Switch the slider to the "off" position.
