Disable Wi-Fi to prolong iPhone battery life

Turn off Wi-Fi on your iPhone to preserve your battery power

Here's how you can quickly turn off Wi-Fi on your iPhone to prolong your iPhone's battery power.

1. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open Control Center.

2. Tap the Wi-Fi icon to turn it off if it's on.

Or you can do it a different way:

1. Go to Settings.

2. Go to Wi-Fi.

3. Toggle the Wi-Fi switch to the off position.

Wi-Fi is extremely useful but only when you actually need an internet connection. Otherwise it just drains your battery down for no good reason.
