The rollout of iOS 9 was an enormous one. While the update had its fair share of problems on release day, such as the OTA download failing over and over again, but with time, everyone got their fix of iOS 9 on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Oddly enough, a very few subset of users are complaining that cellular data is not working on their devices after they had upgraded to iOS 9, and today, we'll walk you through the process of fixing the issue in no time.

Fix Cellular Data Not Working Issue On iOS 9

1. Launch the Settings app from your iOS device's home screen.

2. Now tap on General.

3. Scroll all the way down and tap on the entry labelled 'Reset.'

4. Over here you'll see a bunch of options pertaining to resetting certain aspects of your device. Tap on the 'Reset Network Settings' option. If you have a passcode in place, you'll prompted to enter it, so do so. Then tap on 'Reset Network Settings' again to confirm your action.


Your device will reboot and boot back into iOS 9 after a couple of minutes. Once done, you should see cellular data working once again. Also make sure that the cellular data network toggle switch is ON. You can check by heading over to Settings > Cellular.

The above mentioned method didn't work for you? Then you might want to restore your device fresh using iTunes. In order to do just that, follow our detailed guide posted here: How To Download / Install iOS 9 On iPhone, iPad, iPod touch The Right Way.

According to different social media outlets, the cellular data issue is a very small one and only a few people are affected by it. And since we are sitting on top of the first release of iOS 9, these issues are bound to happen, but over time Apple will push out updates to fix everything to make the overall user experience the best one there is.

We highly recommend that users update to iOS 9 using iTunes from scratch so that they get the best experience there is from Apple's latest mobile operating system as OTA updates tend to break a few things along the way especially if you have a ton of apps installed on your device.
