iOS 9 give you control over which apps have access to information stored on your iOS device. For example, you can allow a social-networking app to use your camera, allowing you to take and upload pictures. You can also grant access to your contacts, so a messaging app can find any friends that are already using the same app.
5 iOS 9 Privacy Settings Everyone Needs to Understand
You can modify privacy settings in Settings > Privacy. You can select a type of data from this list to see which apps have asked for permission to use that data. An app won’t appear on the list until it asks permission to use your data. You can add or remove permission from any app that has asked for access to data. An app can use your data only if you have given it your permission.
Apple’s new iOS 9 didn’t really change much from iOS 8, with the exception of a few tiny features like low-power mode, app thinning, a smarter caller ID, and a news app.
While the small upgrades mean most iPhone users won’t have to learn anything new, they shouldn’t simply keep using their phones as if nothing’s changed. As Quartz noted, anyone who has upgraded should go through the new operating system and pay special attention to the “Settings.” Failure to do so could cost you big time when your cell phone bill comes.
Hidden at the very bottom of the “Cellular” tab in settings, there’s a toggle called “Wi-Fi Assist.” The default setting in iOS 9 is for “Wi-Fi Assist” to be on. When it’s activated, the iPhone will use cellular data—from your cell phone plan—to supplement the Wi-Fi if the router signal is weak. Though the option will boost your phone speed, it will also most certainly tax your data plan. And if you don’t have unlimited data, it wouldn’t be hard to hit your usage maximum quickly and potentially go over.
So if this is likely to be a problem for you, simply turn “Wi-Fi Assist” off.
Note: In case, you don’t want Apple to track you, we advise you to disable this feature.
