Triggering this command will erase your cellular statistics including the amount of data that you’ve used since the last reset as well as the call time duration, and individual app statistics. This reset does not affect any of your data or iPhone content. That said, all your current settings and content remain as is. The phone’s mobile carrier functionality and account information are likewise not affected.

Resetting cellular data usage statistics regularly is recommended, preferably every month so you can get a more accurate overview of your iPhone’s data usage.

Performing this reset can also help resolve issues affecting mobile data apps.

Step 4: If prompted, read the pop-up message then tap Reset Statistics to confirm.

The cellular network data usage meter on your iPhone will then be restored to zero. 

Among the data that are restored to default values in this reset include data usage stats, app data usage stats, call time stats, and system service stats.
