I use my iPad (1st gen Mini, WiFi) tethered to my iPhone (4S, AT&T) on a daily basis. Since I upgraded both devices to iOS7, my data usage has roughly doubled. I typically get pretty close to, but not over, my 5GB a month; I'm now at 2.9 GB on the eleventh day of the month, with no major changes in usage. This is going to cost me a fortune.


I have found where to disable apps from using cellular data on the iPhone, and turned off several apps there. But there is no such option on the iPad. Does the iPad differentiate between tethering and any other WiFi connection? Is there a way to disable some apps and activities when tethered but still have them available when I'm on my WiFi at home?
