How can I find out what apps use the most data on my iphone?


I'm really enjoying my Koodo plan - a LOT cheaper than Bell. I usually have my data turned off when I'm out and about, and even when it's on, it doesn't use that much. However, one day there were several 20 MB charges right in a row. Any idea how I can find out what caused that? I wasn't streaming anything. Thanks!

An iPhone shows your locally tracked consumption of cellular data via Settings > Cellular. Scroll to bottom to see Cellular Data usage by App.
Thank you, Justin! Do you know if that's per use or per minute? It kind of looks like two times I used 60 MB in one minute; I don't have any apps that are that high so I couldn't figure it out.

It's per app overall

Scroll down to Use Cellular Data For: , and you can take a look at the usage of each app. And you should set app store to update only via wifi, otherwise apps might be updating in the background using your data without notifying you.
Thank you - that's so helpful!
