When tethering an iPhone or iPad with a cellular plan, keep in mind that you’ll either be utilizing the data from that plan or a smaller pool set aside for tethering. Some activities, such as viewing films or downloading huge files, will use up your carrier’s data allowance. In general, even if your phone’s carrier has zeroed out the activity, it won’t be on your connected device.
