What is ‘Apple Services’ and why is it taking up so much data?

I have the 4G home broadband and noticed that this month ‘Apple Services’ was taking around 30% of my wifi usage! I saw it would take up about half of my wifi usage each day, I didn’t have this problem last month. I don’t use any apple services, no itunes, apple tv, safari, and have not recently backed up my icloud or done any system updates. I’ve tried resetting the router but it didn’t seem to work. Any clues?

Re: What is ‘Apple Services’ and why is it taking up so much data?

Hi there @40stooquiet, thanks for reaching out. Just to confirm, are you the only person that uses this service or are there any other people using the connection that could have contributed to this data usage? 

If you're unable to discern where this data usage has come from, please send us a message via the My Optus App or our Messaging page. We'll then be able to take a closer look at your data usage for you.
