How to Turn Off Wifi Assist on iPhone 14, 13 (Any iPhone)

Last Updated on Jun 21, 2023

The first time Apple added Wi-Fi Assist in iOS, It comes by default enabled. Switching automatically to cellular data works when you have a weak Wi-Fi connection. Meaning that it will use your cell data. So ultimately, that’s useful for maintaining online video playing or Facebook browsing, but not much good for limited data plan users.

For example, Safari doesn’t load a web page on a poor wifi network at that time. Wi-fi assists directly in switching your Wi-Fi network to your mobile data plan.

To save your pocket money, I’ll share with you how to turn off Wi-Fi Assist on your iPhone or iPad.
