Using Airplane Mode

Normally, you will want to keep your iPhone connected to the cellular network so that you can make or receive phone calls and access the Internet. But when you do not need or may not use the cellular network, you can turn on the iPhone’s Airplane Mode feature to cut off all connections.

Turning on Airplane Mode turns off Wi-Fi connections as well, but you can also turn Wi-Fi on and off separately when you need to.
