Reduced Data Mode allows users to reduce data consumption than iPhone or iPad applications. There are 2 reduced data modes: 1 the mode that applies to mobile data and 2 the mode that applies to the Wifi network to which we are connected..
The first mode that applies to your mobile data pack allows you to: Reduce the use of mobile data when this feature is enabled, it will pause automatic updates and background tasks like photo syncing.
On the other hand, you can also activate the reduced data mode applied to the WiFi network to which you are connected. In this case, the function can also be used to reduce the bandwidth that your iPhone or iPad uses from a Wifi connection. As you know, when we connect several devices to a Wifi network, the speed or bandwidth is distributed among all the devices connected to the same network. If we use the Reduced Data Mode in a WiFi network, you will minimize the bandwidth used by your iOS device and therefore enjoy a higher bandwidth in the other devices connected to the same WiFi network..
