FAQs

Q. Can we check data usage statistics for dual SIM? 

Yes, we can monitor dual SIM data consumption. You may see how much cellular data you’ve used on your chosen cellular data number while using an iPhone with dual SIMs (physical and eSIM).

Q. Are there any third-party applications to track data usage? 

The built-in data usage tracker is not very precise and doesn’t provide much information about how much data you use. Fortunately, you can track and personalize your data consumption with a few third-party programs. DataMan – Data Usage Widget, Data Usage Pro, and My Data Manager VPN Security are the applications I recommend.
