IOS 13 will not let go broke on the Internet
Review proven traffic saving techniques.
Mobile internet is expensive. Depending on the country, operator and tariff, the cost of a gigabyte of data can vary from several tens of cents to several tens of dollars. That’s why it’s good to know how not to waste extra traffic. Today we’ll show you how to save mobile Internet on iOS 13.
There are many ways to limit the consumption of mobile traffic. The easiest and most effective way is to turn off cellular data and use Wi-Fi whenever possible. Unfortunately, this advice does not work outside of home, work, cafes and other public places. That’s why it makes sense to delve into the iPhone settings and block unnecessary options.

Disable cellular data for unnecessary applications
The most effective way to limit traffic consumption. By default, in the absence of Wi-Fi, every application on the iPhone uses cellular data. The function can be disabled for programs that you rarely use. Open the Settings – Cellular menu and view the list of applications consuming mobile Internet. Turn off traffic usage for unnecessary programs by moving the green slider to the left.
Disable background content updates
Most iPhone apps use mobile Internet to update content in the background. If you disable the option, data in applications will be updated only after they are launched. In other words, the latest Instagram photos will take a little longer to load. You can prohibit background updates for selected programs in the "Settings" – "General" – "Content Update" menu.
For updates, you can also use exclusively Wi-Fi. To do this, in the "Content Updates" section, select the "Wi-Fi" option.
Disable Wi-Fi Help
The iPhone can automatically switch to mobile Internet when the Wi-Fi signal is weak or the connection is unstable. There is no notification at the same time: the user learns about the transition to cellular data only when the megabytes in the packet run out. Disable the dubious function: open "Settings" – "Cellular communication" – "Wi-Fi Help".
Do not use mobile traffic for iCloud Drive
Documents and frequently used files are conveniently stored in iCloud Drive – they are synchronized with all user devices. Fee for convenience – increased traffic consumption. To keep documents updated only over Wi-Fi, turn off sync using your cellular network. To do this, use the menu "Settings" – "Cellular" – iCloud Drive.
Turn off modem mode
Modem mode allows you to distribute the Internet from iPhone to other devices. A weak password or automatic connection of family members to the access point allows other users to spend your cellular data. Make sure that the function is turned off by opening “Settings” – “Modem Mode”.
Disallow App Store auto downloads
Set up the use of mobile traffic by the Music application
Apple Music uses a lot of cellular data. Disable them completely for the Music application if you rarely listen to songs. It is better for music lovers to turn off automatic downloads, streaming, or at least high-quality audio playback. Necessary to change the menu parameters: “Settings” – “Music” – “Cellular data”.
Turn off cellular data for the Maps application
Map navigation consumes a lot of mobile traffic. Disabling the app’s “Content Update” and “Cellular Data” options will help to moderate the appetites of the application. They are available in the "Settings" – "Maps" menu.
Do not sync photos and videos without connecting to Wi-Fi
A huge library of photos and videos can spend several hundred megabytes of cellular data in a few minutes. Often this happens when synchronizing files in their original resolution. The “Cellular data” and “Unlimited updates” options will help to avoid spending mobile data: both must be turned off.
Use low quality mode in Messages
Correspondence in the messenger is a seemingly harmless activity in terms of spending traffic. However, for those who share photos and funny pictures through Messaging, the mobile Internet service package ends quickly. If without memes at all, turn on the low-quality mode – so the iPhone will automatically compress images. Go to “Settings” – “Messages”, and then find the “Low quality mode” parameter at the bottom.
Enable data saving
Mysterious function that appeared in iOS 13. It by its algorithms reduces the consumption of cellular data by applications. Apple did not tell how the new option works, but we have no reason to doubt the skills of the company’s developers. You can enable the function in the menu “Settings” – “Cellular communication” – “Data parameters”.
Set up automatic closing of tabs in Safari
A bunch of open tabs in the browser and saving traffic are incompatible things. It’s not always possible to close everything manually: because of forgetfulness, haste or laziness. Turn on automatic tab closure and they won’t secretly use your precious megabytes. Open "Settings" – "Safari" – "Close tabs" and check the box next to the option "Day later." This will solve the problem.
Use Read Mode in Safari
Another option for the native iOS 13 browser. Automatic "Read" mode will allow you to download only significant parts of websites. Additional elements like advertisements and banners will not consume cellular data, and you can enjoy the Internet without being distracted by trifles. An option is enabled in the menu "Settings" – "Safari" – "Read".
Using all the tips from this material, you will noticeably reduce the consumption of cellular data on your iPhone, but lose some useful features. This is why we recommend that you follow the guidelines for saving mobile Internet wisely.
