I have recently purchased an Iphone 5s, when i turn the mobile data on and off i have to go into the settings. Is there any way i can do it easier? I have tried flicking up from the top and bottom, however cannot find an easier way.
There is no specific way to turn off only Cellular Data without going into settings. A (possibly) quicker work around for you would be swiping up from the bottom to get the control center, then turning on Airplane Mode (far left button) and then turning back on WiFi and/or bluetooth.
That would disable cellular data,WiFi, Bluetooth by going into Airplane Mode, and you would get data over WiFi back when you turn that back on.
Try the launcher app. It works great into the mobile data settings screen directly from the Today swipe down screen.
