If your iPhone’s service bill is high due to cellular data usage, it’s easy to find the culprit in Settings by examining which apps are using the most cellular data.

To see how much cellular data each app has been using, all you need to do is make a trip to iPhone’s built-in Settings app. To get started, open Settings by tapping the gear icon.

In Settings, choose “Cellular.”

In iPhone Settings, tap "Cellular."

When you’re in Cellular settings, you’ll see several options with switches. Scroll down below that and you’ll find a list of apps installed on your cell phone. They are sorted by how much cellular data they have been using, with heavy offenders at the top of the list. Each app displays its cellular data usage just below its name.

You'll see the cellular data in use listed below the app's anme on iPhone Settings.

The data you’re seeing is from the “Current Period,” which on some cellular plans is tied to your actual cell phone billing cycle. On others, the “Current Period” is the length of time since the cellular data statistics were last reset. You can find that date down at the very bottom of the Cellular settings page.

At the bottom of Cellular settings, you'll see the date the current period started.

To reset the statistics for the current period, tap “Reset Statistics,” located just above the “Last Reset” date. All the cellular data usage numbers listed for the apps above will reset to zero and begin counting up again until the next billing period (on some carriers) or until you manually reset the statistics again.

If an app is using too much cellular data, it’s easy to block it from ever using cellular data at all. To do so, open Settings and navigate to “Cellular.” Scroll down to the list of apps and flip the switch beside the app that’s using too much cellular data into the off position.

Flip the switch beside the app name to turn off Cellular Data for that app in iPhone Settings.

With cellular data turned off for that app, it will still work when your iPhone is connected to Wi-Fi, but when you’re not—and you’re only connected to cellular data—that app will not connect to the internet.

You can also turn on Low Data mode to reduce some cellular data usage in Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data. Flip the switch beside “Low Data Mode” to enable it.

Turn "Low Data Mode" on.
With Low Data Mode on, some background tasks will be disabled, and you’ll use less cellular data.

Also, if you’ve been accidentally using cellular data due to a spotty Wi-Fi connection, you can disable that in Settings > Cellular by switching “Wi-Fi Assist” to off.

Turn "Wi-Fi Assist" off.
