How to Turn Off Wi-Fi on the iPhone 5

Wi-Fi on your iPhone 5 is one of the most important features that you will use on the device. Connecting to Wi-Fi can typically provide you with a stronger data connection so that Web pages load faster or video streams smoother, plus it will prevent you from using the data on your cellular plan.

But Wi-Fi is not always ideal, and you may find yourself in a situation where you do not want to use it. This can be problematic if you are in range of a remembered Wi-Fi network, as the iPhone 5 will always attempt to connect to a known Wi-Fi network when it can find one.

Fortunately it is possible to turn off the Wi-Fi connection on your iPhone 5 and force your phone to connect to the cellular network instead.
