How do I switch off Wi-Fi Assist on IOS9?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff 

All iPhone/iPad users should be aware that a new feature in iOS9 (“Wi-Fi Assist”) could potentially consume a large quantity of mobile data without you realising.

The setting is installed to “On” by default after an upgrade to iOS9 but can be switched off on the General/Settings/Mobile Data screen of your device (you’ll need to scroll right to the bottom of the screen to find the option):

Information Services recommends switching the option “Off” to give you control over the consumption of your mobile data and avoid costly bills/running out of your data allowance.
