Prevent apps from using up your cellular data on iOS 7

By: Marawan Alwaraki, February 21, 2014
The iPhone is a good tool for accessing internet on the go, and is now more commonly used very regularly for internet usage. Unfortunately if you're not connected to Wi-Fi this could lead to drainage in your cellular data. Which could ultimately cost you some extra cash.

Thankfully, with iOS 7 you can restrict certain apps from accessing your cellular data. This is especially handy for games that only use your cellular data to load ads. So by disabling internet access for the game, you'll save money as well as not see ads!

If this sounds good to you, then here's the best part. All it takes is 3 steps to do this.

1- Open Settings

2- Tap on Cellular






3- Turn off apps that you want to block from using your cellular data. If the toggles are greyed out then turn on cellular data to allow changes.




You'll probably find apps missing from the list. No worries. Most apps will only appear here if they have tried accessing your cellular data before. So if you want to prevent Cut the Rope from accessing cellular data you may need to open the game first with cellular data connected and then you'll find it in the list.

This is it for today's tip. If you like it then feel free to share it with your friends. Also, like Alwaraki Blog on Facebook and Twitter to never miss an update.
