First question here...
I have a Apple iPhone 8 and use Apple Music on my journey into work (around 40 min journey). I recently had my data roll over to a new month (2 days) and according to my mobile data usage, I have used in excess of 1.1GB already using this.
I personally don't believe this for one minute, unless I'm streaming video. I wouldn't expect to go beyond 256kbps when streaming music, so around an average of 40-50MB per hour? (estimate). Can anyone explain?
I would expect to use that amount (1.1GB) across the whole month, surely?

@juslisnen Is this usage report from your EE account or your device

I’m not quite sure what you mean.
The total data used on my EE account tallies up with the breakdown on the iPhone setting usage screen. I reset the usage statistics when the data reset from EE 3 days ago.
The iPhone states I’ve used 1.2gb of music data in as little as 3 days. Seems excessive to me? This is for a 40 min journey into work and back.
Facebook has used 2gb but that could be video playback etc.
Is there a setting I should be looking at?

Welcome to the EE Community. 🙂
You can reduce the amount of data that Apple Music uses by turning off High Quality on Mobile Data in Settings > Mobile Data.
Alternatively, Our Music Data Pass gives you unlimited data to use with Apple Music and other selected music apps.
Hope this helps.

I couldn't find that setting but found something similar in: Settings>Music>Mobile Data>High-Quality Streaming
Problem is, as I only listen in car for a short journey I prefer HQ music so guess the choice is to leave on or turn off and see if I notice a difference in quality.
I'll take a look at the Music Data Pass, thank you!
