There are a few reasons why your iPhone may suddenly lose its LTE/4G network connectivity. Often it is because of poor coverage, an expired data plan, or a problem in your cellular settings.
Fortunately, there are solutions to fix your cellular network issues. Whether it’s 3G, 4G, or LTE not working on your iPhone, these fixes should work for you.
Go to Settings
There are a lot of settings on an iPhone that can help you improve your battery life, make it easier to access important information and more. You can also get creative and add shortcuts to certain features that you use the most.
One of the most common problems is when LTE stops working on your phone out of the blue. This can be a result of poor coverage, an expired data plan or a fault in your cellular settings.
However, there are a few fixes that can fix this issue without having to replace your cellular plan or deal with software problems. Here are 15 ways to restore LTE on your iPhone:
The first thing you should try is restarting your iPhone. This should fix the problem if there is a minor software error that’s preventing your iPhone from connecting to 4G.
Another option is to reset your iPhone’s network settings. This will erase all your iPhone’s Cellular, Wi-Fi and APN settings and give it a fresh start.
There are a few reasons why your cellular data connection may not be working on your iPhone. Some of these include bugs & glitches in the operating system or software update, network outages, and problems with your SIM card.
First, make sure cellular data is turned on by opening your Settings app. It’s the app with the gear-shaped icon on your home screen or in the apps library. Tap the icon to access its main settings menu.
Next, check if you have the right data plan for your iPhone. If not, you’ll need to call your carrier and add a new plan.
In addition, you can adjust your data limits to reduce cellular data usage and save yourself from overage fees at the end of each month. You can do this by setting up data warnings or enabling automatic cellular data turn-off when your monthly data limit is reached.
You can also control which apps use cellular data by turning off location services for them, or turning on a toggle next to each app name. This helps control data usage, and is particularly useful if you are on a limited data plan.
Tap Cellular Data Options
LTE is a feature on many iPhones that improves the quality of voice and data connections over cellular networks. But it can also use a lot of battery and cause issues with network stability. You may need to turn off lte on your iPhone to save battery life, avoid problems with network stability, or just to keep your data usage within your data plan limit.
In iOS, you can easily restrict which apps and services use cellular data by simply tapping the Cellular Data Options button. Using this feature can help you manage your cellular data usage and avoid overage fees for your mobile carrier.
Some apps and services automatically use cellular data for background refreshes, app downloads, video autoplay and push notifications. These features can all be turned off from the Cellular Data Options screen, and you can also restrict iCloud Drive and iCloud Backups from using cellular data to save data on your phone.
Another important setting to consider is Wi-Fi Assist. This is a special feature that uses cellular data to help you stay connected over a poor Wi-Fi connection when your device can’t reach a good connection over Wi-Fi.
Tap Enable LTE
The iPhone is a powerful device that can do a lot of things. However, there are times when you may want to turn off LTE because it can cause issues or use a lot of battery power. Luckily, it is easy to do.
To do this, you’ll need to go to the Settings app and tap Cellular. From there, you can disable cellular data, LTE, and data roaming.
When you have cellular data turned off, you can’t make calls or use other services that rely on a cellular connection. You also won’t be able to access your emails or download new apps.
This option is mainly for people who use a lot of data and are concerned with battery life, though it’s not the best choice for most iPhone users. You can still make calls, but they’ll be a lot slower.
If you do want to make calls over LTE, there are ways to get around this problem. For example, you can use a network extender to boost LTE signal strength and avoid this issue. You can also use Apple’s Voice over LTE feature to let your phone use VoLTE instead of just traditional cellular data.
If you’re on a cellular network and don’t want to use fast LTE mobile speeds, you can turn off this capability with just a few taps. It’s an easy way to save battery life, avoid data overload, and improve the overall experience of using your iPhone.
If LTE is enabled, you’ll see an option to enable or disable it in the Status Bar, along with a few other options for using cellular data and enabling voice calling. You can also customize the settings for individual apps and services so you get the best performance when you’re connected to a cellular network.
For most people, it’s recommended to leave LTE turned on. It offers faster speeds and better voice quality, but it can drain your battery. If you’re a light user or have a limited data plan, it may be worth turning off LTE for a little while to save battery.
Another feature that could be a drain on your battery is “Tap to Wake,” which makes it easy to quickly check notifications, take photos, and use widgets on the Lock Screen with a single tap. That can lead to a lot of accidental taps, which can shorten the battery life of your iPhone.
To turn off Tap to Wake, simply open the Settings app, tap Mobile, and slide the switch to the OFF position. You can also set up actions for Double Tap and Triple Tap to perform system actions like opening the Notification Center, taking a screenshot, and more. You can even add shortcuts from the Shortcuts app to these functions, making it easier to access them in a pinch.
