Question: Excessive data use

Over the last month my iphone has started to use excessive amounts of data even with all apps closed and the phone not in use the battery life is also down to approx 6 hours. I have looked at the data use in settings but cannot see the app that is causing this issue any ideas?

iPhone 5s, iOS 11.1

Do you have WiFi assist enabled or are apps updating in background mode?

Go to Settings-Cellular and scroll to the bottom and "Reset Statistics." Then check again in 12-24 hours and see what is causing the usage.

There apps in the App Store that can help you monitor data usage and provide alerts.
