Apple Addresses WiFi Assist with Data Counter
Apple has added a small feature to WiFi Assist in iOS 9.3 that displays how much cellular data the tool is using. WiFi Assist forces iPhones off of weak WiFi signals in favor of stronger cellular data signals. It was added to iOS to combat slow network performance when iPhones doggedly remained connected to crummy WiFi even when strong LTE was available. Some users have complained, however, that they ran up large cellular bills by surfing over LTE when they thought they were using WiFi. Now, WiFi Assist clearly shows how much cellular data has been consumed with the WiFi Assist function is turned on.
