Wi-Fi Assist has been my number one trending topic on Facebook all day and we’re already hearing plenty of horror stories about iPhone users whose mobile data usage has skyrocketed since the upgrade.

That’s it! Now feel free to download to your hearts content on slow Wi-Fi without the fear of your mobile data kicking in.
