    I have a problem with an annoying repeating popup "Cellular Data is Turned Off for Audible" which also occurs with Podcast apps on my iPhone 6.

    Any advise as I don't want to switch cellular data on?

    What is this annoying cellular data popup on the iOS 8?-img_0051.png

    IOS 7 did it too. I agree it's annoying, but other than jailbreaking, there aren't any alternatives

    Thanks for replying. I had no such problem on iOS 7. This happens several times a day on iOS 8.

    I have the same with several apps ig I don't allow them to use 3g, they function without but this banner always pops up. Had that with IOS 7 and again with 8.
    I think it's the way the app is programed, in my case because the developer relies on adds, no way to get rid of the adds by buying a premium version (and that is why I don't the app to use cellular data).
    I think we have to live with it until the developer changes the app design?

    Would anyone know if this is an inherent iOS 8 problem or purely an app problem?

    I would say that it's not a "problem". But yes, it is inherent in the operating system. Working as designed.

    I had apps that did it in iOS 7 and now in iOS 8.

    Not disagreeing that people could find it "annoying", however.

    My suggestion would be to provide feedback to Apple:

    Good idea HankZ. If I choose not to use cellular with an app I don't want to be bugged with the pop up every time I open that app.

    It's not ads. I get this with several applications that are paid for or ad-free free or built-in. Including Bejeweled, Music, and Podcasts. And it happens in Bejeweled even when connected to WiFi.
