It’s one thing to use an internet-enabled device and another to keep yourself from spending all you’ve got on internet data subscription plans. Android and iPhone users are two categories of people who would do what they can to keep their data subscription costs to the barest minimum. For the iPhone users, there are various ways of tracking your data usage.

Let’s find out how you can track your data usage on iPhone.

Firstly, you need to check your data usage to know how what your daily limit is like on your phone. The statistics may differ slightly from the one provided by your ISP.

  • Navigate to and tap on the icon for “Settings” > Cellular > Scroll down to “Cellular Data Usage” to view your usage statistics for the selected current period.

You might notice a high statistic beyond what you imagined. It’s probably because you haven’t “Reset the statistics” counter within the last 30 days. Simply scroll down and reset the statistics if that is the case. Then wait for a day or two to check your daily usage statistics so you can be able to make a near accurate estimate of how much data you use daily. This will help you set a limit. Then proceed to the methods below.

Method 1: Monitor and restrict some apps from using data

  • On your phone, navigate to Settings > Cellular and look at the apps that are running.
  • Turn off cellular data usage for iCloud Calendar
  • You should turn off your automatic download for apps except when you’re on a Wi-Fi network. Do same for podcasts.
  • Disable background app refresh on your phone. Navigate to “Settings” > “General” > “Background App Refresh” and turn it off.
