Data usage

Answered
What is one doing if they average 200-300mb of data per day when... they say they’re very busy; they do not use social media at all & put their iPhone in the desk drawer all day...???

Re: Data usage

One of the reasons the iPhone might be using data is apps automatically updating in background. This an be disabled or set to only update on WiFi. See link below for how to change auto update.

The phone also consumes a small amount of data checking and downloading data for email and other messaging apps. Background data can be restricted in the settings.
