    I saw some iOS 9 notes on a website that states you could use your cellular data and combine it with your wifi, if the wifi connection was poor.

    It also stated that this wasn't available for everyone? I didn't see anything in the notes for it so I assume this is a myth?

    It's there. "Wifi assist" option in the cellular settings menu.

    Just seen it and got it! So is there is threshold to which it then activates your cellular data?

    I'm not sure honestly. I have noticed a difference in some situations though. At work the wifi used to get very slow from time to time, but I haven't noticed a slowdown since using this setting (I got the GM last week).

    If you don't have a lot of data on your plan you might be cautious.

    Luckily my plan is 20Gb per month.

    I normally tether from my iPhone as the internet at my current living location is poor! I've turned it off for now as I know it would eat the data.
