If you’re finding some irregular download history for your Mobile service in MyAccount, automatic downloads are common causes.
Note: The automatic download of the latest iOS software updates are unavoidable. iOS software updates download automatically in the background and then prompt you to install them. We recommend turning off "Use Mobile Data" as per the instructions below.
Music – When turned on, any purchased iTunes music will download automatically.
Apps – When turned on, any purchased apps will download automatically.
Books – When turned on, any purchased Books will download automatically.
Updates – When turned on, updates for any apps on your device will download as soon as they become available.
This means that automatic downloads would only run when your device is connected to a WiFi network. It’s a good way to make sure your mobile data isn’t used up unexpectedly by automatic downloads.
We recommend following the steps below to disable Wi-Fi Assist. The feature automatically defaults to using your mobile data when Wi-Fi signal is poor. This means it could use your mobile data without you realising, causing your mobile service to exceed your monthly quota and accrue excess data fees.
