    Hi,

    I just got a notification that I've used 2 GB of 4G data today, and I don't see how this is possible. The phone is reporting that virtually all of the usage is through tethering, and yes, I've had the computer tethered today. However, I've only been using OneNote and I can't imagine that it'd possibly use anywhere near that much data.

    Activity Monitor only seems to show usage since you launched the app. Is there some way I can find historical usage?

    I'm back home now and when I went to install 10.12.1 it started installing immediately. It seems that automatic downloads had turned themselves back on (without asking) when I first installed 10.12. It also proceeded to download over the 4G connection despite the docs saying that it won't automatically download when using a hotspot. Not impressed.
