Streaming video services like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney Plus allow you to easily watch content from a huge library using an app on your iPhone. This level of convenience provides an easy way to keep yourself entertained.
But streaming video can use a lot of data when you do it over a cellular connection, and you may be concerned that you will go over your data cap and potentially pay some overage charges.
Luckily there is an option in the Disney + app that lets you stream at a lower quality and use less data. Our tutorial below will show you where to find that setting.
How to Reduce Cellular Data Usage in the iPhone Disney + App
The steps in this guide were performed on an iPhone 11 in iOS 13.1.3. Note that this will not affect cellular data usage in any other video streaming apps that you have. It is specific to the Disney + app.
Step 1: Open Disney +.
Step 2: Tap the profile tab at the bottom of the screen.
Step 3: Touch the App Settings menu option.
Step 4: Choose the Cellular Data Usage option.
Step 5: Select the Save Data option.
Alternatively, you can select the Wi-Fi Only option if you would prefer to only stream video when you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network.
Now that you know how to use less data when streaming in Disney Plus, you will be able to use the streaming service on a cellular network without using all of your monthly data immediately.
