Apple’s Wi-Fi Assist Feature In  iOS 9.3 Will Now Show Exact Data Usage

Apple brings much awaited feature in iOS 9.3.

It is rumored that iOS 10 is scheduled to launch in June at WWDC 2016. Still, Apple is working very hard to make its recent iOS 9 the best for all.

The first iOS 9.3 beta update for registered developers has proved our point too.

There are a number of extremely amazing features in the new update. The latest beta update also contains the interesting Wi-Fi Assist feature.

This new feature indicates your data usage, when asked. The new feature by Apple will also let you show the data that has been used as a part of this service.

The Wi-Fi Assist option has been included in the form of a small label under the main header to reveal the data used in MBs.

The feature works exactly the same as it used to. The only difference is that it now tracks the data usage separately so that the users will be updated with the exact amount of data utilized.

This new feature is definitely going to be popular. The Wi-Fi assist feature will also prove itself to be trustworthy because it will automatically switch to cellular data connection, once a stable wireless network is not available.

The feature can also prove to be harmful for those who have specific data packages. Automatically switching to the cellular data can also lead to extra data usage.

Apple is also currently fighting against a legal action taken in court against the Wi-Fi Assist’s increased data usage.

Apple has promised to solve the issue. Apple has also published a complete document detailing how this new feature works.
