Wi-Fi Assist is one of the best iOS 9 features

Wi-Fi Assist

Being stuck on a weak Wi-Fi connection is annoying, especially when you know you could be using a better cellular option. This mostly occurs when you're outside but near your house, when using a public Wi-Fi, or when using Wi-Fi at a retail location like a bookstore or coffee shop. Before iOS 9, users receiving a weak Wi-Fi signal would have to make a decision to stick with the dodgy Wi-Fi connection, try to find a better connection or they would have to disable Wi-Fi on their device so they could connect to a cellular network. Thanks to Wi-Fi Assist you will no longer have to do any of these time consuming steps to have a strong connection on your device anytime.
