    Hey guys

    I installed the beta 2 today on my 4S and was playing around with the fone pretty much on wifi most of the time.

    iOS 7 does allow you to track cellular data usage per app and it showed me approx 10MB of usage which isnt a lot but 6 out of the 10 was for system services. If I dig in, a majority of that was for "documents and sync"

    My guess is that it means synching app documents/data to iCloud.
    I faintly remember a setting (toggle switch) in iOS 6 which allowed you to disable using cellular data for iCloud documents & data. It was under "Settings> iCloud>Documents & Data but I dont see that setting now.

    There is a setting under Settings > Cellular > iCloud Documents which is disabled for me.
    No idea what other "documents" is using cellular data.

    any one else seeing this?

    thanks

    Does the iCloud Document and Data sync only sync games progress to other devices or does it do other stuff?

    Thanks. I did realize that one of my app was automatically updated and hv since disabled the auto-update. Lets see if that helps. Will keep the forum updated
