    You must have recently uninstalled a data hungry app. Whether it's an app you have or haven't removed, it's an app you used and deliberating how much data such apps used is pointless.

    If you do a lot of YouTube or Spotify, for instance, and you uninstall both of them, their combined bandwidth use will show up under "Removed apps".

    But if you reinstall any app that was removed the entry will be individualized again. [emoji4] [emoji108]
