Not to be left behind after Apple’s recent reveals, Google has shown off their new device offerings ranging from fresh phones to high-end laptops. Will they be able to step on Apple’s turf? Take a look and be the judge!
Apple recently released iOS 9 with a new feature called Wi-Fi Assist. Wi-Fi Assist allows the device to use cellular data to keep your internet connection active in areas where the Wi-Fi signal may not be very strong.
Android has had a similar feature for some time called Smart Network Switch. To the chagrin of some users, they are finding their cellular bill higher as data overages have been incurred. With application management, you can find it possible to leave the feature on and still not rack up huge data charges.
Disabling Wi-Fi Assist
Let’s start with how to disable the Wi-Fi assist. Some users may just want to turn the feature off and not risk those charges.
To disable Wi-Fi Assist:
- Launch Settings.
- Select Cellular.
- Scroll to the bottom.
- If the switch for Wi-Fi assist is green with an |, the feature is enabled. If it is colorless with an O, the feature is disabled. To turn the Wi-Fi Assist off, tap the green switch.
