On the iPhone "Cellular" settings screen, you can choose which apps are allowed to use cellular data and which can only communicate over wi-fi. In iOS 9, Apple introduced Wi-Fi Assist which automatically switches to cellular data when a wi-fi connection is present, but not functioning well. Can anyone confirm that the iPhone will respect the cellular data use settings when in wi-fi assist mode?
- In the settings, I specify that Tinder isn't allowed to use cellular data.
- I am browsing Tinder on wi-fi
- The wi-fi connection becomes unreliable and Wi-Fi Assist kicks in
- Will my phone now use cellular data for Tinder, since it's pretending that it's still on wi-fi? Or will it apply the cellular data rules and not use Wi-Fi Assist with this specific app?
