iPhone Privacy Settings

Privacy settings let you see and control which apps and system services have access to Location Services, and to contacts, calendars, reminders, and photos. Location Services lets location-based apps such as Reminders, Maps, and Camera gather and use data indicating your location. Your approximate location is determined using available information from cellular network data, local Wi-Fi networks (if you have Wi-Fi turned on), and GPS (may not be available in all areas). The location data collected by Apple isn’t collected in a form that personally identifies you. When an app is using Location Services, appears in the status bar.

Turn Location Services on or off.

Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services. You can turn it off for some or for all apps and services. If you turn off Location Services, you’re prompted to turn it on again the next time an app or service tries to use it.

Turn Location Services off for system services. Several system services, such as compass calibration and location-based ads, use Location Services. To see their status, turn them on or off, or show in the status bar when these services use your location, go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services >
System Services.

iPhone Cellular settings

Use Cellular settings to turn cellular data and roaming on or off, set which apps and services use cellular data, see call time and cellular data usage, and set other cellular options.
If iPhone is connected to the Internet via the cellular data network, the LTE, 4G, 3G, E, or GPRS icon appears in the status bar.

iPhone Networks

iPhone networks LTE, 4G, and 3G service on GSM cellular networks support simultaneous voice and data communications. For all other cellular connections, you can’t use Internet services while you’re talking on the phone unless iPhone also has a Wi-Fi connection to the Internet. Depending on your network connection, you may not be able to receive calls while iPhone transfers data over the cellular network, when downloading a webpage, for example.
  1. iPhone GSM networks: On an EDGE or GPRS connection, incoming calls may go directly to voicemail during data transfers. For incoming calls that you answer, data transfers are paused.
  2. iPhone CDMA networks: On EV-DO connections, data transfers are paused when you answer incoming calls. On 1xRTT connections, incoming calls may go directly to voicemail during data transfers. For incoming calls that you answer, data transfers are paused.

Data transfer resumes when you end the call.
If Cellular Data is off, all data services use only Wi-Fi including email, web browsing, push notifications, and other services. If Cellular Data is on, carrier charges may apply. For example, using certain features and services that transfer data, such as Siri and Messages, could result in charges to your data plan.

Turn Cellular Data on or off. Go to Settings > Cellular, then tap Cellular Data.
The following iPhone settings options may also be available:
  1. Turn Voice Roaming on or off (CDMA): Turn Voice Roaming off to avoid charges from using other carrier’s networks. When your carrier’s network isn’t available, iPhone won’t have cellular (data or voice) service.
  2. Turn Data Roaming on or off: Data Roaming permits Internet access over a cellular data network when you’re in an area not covered by your carrier’s network. When you’re traveling, you can turn off Data Roaming to avoid roaming charges. See Phone settings on page 57.
  3. Enable or disable 4G/LTE (varies by carrier): Using 4G or LTE loads Internet data faster in some cases, but may decrease battery performance. If you’re making a lot of phone calls, you may want to turn 4G/LTE off to extend battery life. This option is not available in all areas. On iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, there are options for turning off 4G/LTE, selecting Voice & Data (VoLTE), or Data Only.
  4. Voice & Data (some carriers): Choose LTE to load data faster. Choose slower speeds to increase battery life.
  5. Set up Personal Hotspot: Personal Hotspot shares the Internet connection on iPhone with your computer and other iOS devices.
