    Verizon has just released an update to the MyVerizon app for iOS 8 users. The new update allows you to see your data usage straight from notification Center. Verizon is harnessing the power of widgets that Apple brought forth with iOS 8 to show users a real time view of their data usage. This makes it much quicker and easier for Verizon customers to track their data.

    I hope Cricket Wireless will implement the same thing so I can have it too!

    That's pretty cool. Wish AT&T had that widget. I'm checking my data all the time via text message.

    You know what's sad? That Verizon could get an update like this faster than Google get Lollipop to my 2013 Nexus 7.

    Cleaned up the arguing.

    It's a thread informing of an update to an app, guys. Not every time you see the word "widget" on iMore do you need to come in and make comments. Sheesh.

    This new widget is awesome, but does anyone know if it only shows that particular line's data usage or the whole account's data usage?

    I wasn't arguing either. I was just expressing my extreme hatred of Android fanboys. I see that my post got deleted. Oh well.

    Whole account on my family plan.

    Depends on your plan. I have 4 lines on the More Everything Plan. The widget shows the shared amount. Those that show 2 gb are a different plan.

    That's super convenient. For anyone with less than an unlimited plan who could get overages, this type of widget is really useful!

    Got it updated last night. Works good so far. Its weird though I seem to my data more now but shows like I'm using less after I have 6 GB plan haha. Oh well it's there if I need it now and I only have to pay $10 more than my old 2 GB plan.
