Normally I use less than half my data. This time I am halfway through my billing period and my data is almost used up. In looking at the bill, most of the high usage is happening when I am home. Is it possible to see what apps are being used during those times?

On an android phone you can see the data usage per application. Some of the data is consumed due to background activity, which cam be disabled. In android, you may also select ‘Data Saver’ mode to reduce data usage.

You can do the same thing on iPhone too, But the data used will be based on when the data usage was last reset.
