I was checking with no reason my data balance and noticed that there is daily data consumption on my account vary from 20MB to 60MB each morning between 7am and 8:30am. I didnt contact but my use is not heavy and at that time mostly I am at home with my WiFi is available. I was wondering why this data usage every morning on my account.

Ohh, did anybody notice and have same usage as I do?

You can look in Settings > Cellular to see what apps are consuming data. You may need to do a reset, and see what is no longer zero in the morning.

Often, iPhones switch off the Wi-Fi radio to conserve battery when unused for a period. At those times, downloads may occur over cellular.

Finally, confirm Wi-Fi Assist is off is Settings > Cellular.

setting is up to date.

Usage of data for apps are limited as I have restricted most of the Apps. Also WiFi Assist is off.

today I checked that data was not used because purposely I turned off data last night to see if it impacts the usage.
