Lots of little data usage all night

Userlevel 4
Hello 🙂

I'm noticing a lot of little data usage during the night.  every hour or so, it'll take 0.01mb from my plan.  I'm connected to wifi.  I tried checking wifi settings to see if it was going to sleep, but I couldn't find any settings like that in wifi.

iPhones like to eat data. When the screen's off, the phone usually prefers the data connection signal if WiFi is weaker. A simple solution is to just turn your data off and keep WiFi on when you're at home. That way no leakage occurs.

In my experience, if you charge your phone overnight, the phone is less likely to switch to data, but rather stay on Wi-Fi. This may be because my charging point is near my router, so YMMV.

.10 mb sounds like the WiFi signal drops and data takes over. Best data saving practice is to keep data off until absolutely necessary.
