If you only have a limited amount of data that you can use on your iPhone cellular or mobile plan, then you might be looking for a way to keep an eye on it, especially if you come close to using all of it each month.
Many providers charge extra money for data used above your allotment, and you may be looking for a way to avoid those charges.
While you may be able to see your data usage by navigating to your mobile provider’s website, that can take some time, and you might be looking for a quick way to do it directly from your phone.
Fortunately, you can take advantage of an option in the Settings app that tracks the amount of cellular data that you use.
This can be helpful even if you have unlimited data, and those types of plans can sometimes throttle your data usage when you get above a certain level.
How to Use the iPhone’s Reset Statistics Option for Cellular Data
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 13 in the iOS 16.4 operating system. These same steps will work for most other iOS versions and iPhone models, including:
- iPhone 13 Mini
- iPhone 13 Pro
- iPhone 13 Pro Max
Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
Step 2: Choose the Cellular option near the top of the menu.
Step 3: Scroll to the bottom of the screen and touch the Reset Statistics button.
Step 4: Tap Reset Statistics again to confirm.
Now that you know how to reset cellular data usage statistics on iPhone 13, you will be able to employ this technique to help you monitor the amount of data that you use when connected to a cellular network.
Note that there isn’t a way to view usage statistics for a particular period of time, or to tell your phone to reset this information every week or month, so you will need to take care of that yourself.
A good option would be to set a reminder or calendar alert that repeats every week or month so that you can make sure everything is as accurate as possible.
If it seems like you are constantly using more cellular data than you think you should be, there are a lot of options that you can change to help minimize data usage.
A big one to check is on the Settings > App Store menu. If you check the Celllular Data section on this menu, you can disable the option for Automatic Downloads, which can help to stop your phone from downloading app updates, new apps, or other content when you are connected to a cellular network.
There is also an option called Low Data Mode, which can be found on the Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options > Data Mode menu. Turning this on will adjust multiple settings at once, and can dramatically reduce the amount of cellular data that you consume.
