But it’s costly.

Especially as most networks no longer allow you to roam in EU countries for free since Brexit.

Otherwise, the next time you get off a flight you could be stung by an extra bill.

Open Settings on your iPhone, then Mobile Data.

Low Power Mode

Low Power Mode is a great way to save battery.

It forces apps to do less stuff in the background so you have more power to get through the day.

To turn it on, just go to Settings and find Battery.

Now switch on the Low Power Mode option.

Background App Refresh

You can stop apps from refreshing in the background to save battery as well.

To do it, go to Settings, then General.

Find Background App Refresh.

Tap Background App Refresh again.

Here you can choose between Off, Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi & Mobile Data.
