    Ok, for me this is a very crucial because I switch between wifi and data VERY frequently.

    Is there anyway I could put a data toggle in the control center instead of the default ones (e.g. the rarely useful Airplane Mode !!!!!)???

    And if there is not (which apparently is the case), could I do it with a widget or something?

    P.S. I am not talking about switching between LTE, 3G and 4G. I am talking about "data" toggle in control center.

    You would likely have to JB your phone to accomplish this.

    I'm not trying to be rude, just curious, but why is this necessary? What's the point of turning off data when on wifi?

    I don't see a reason to switch between them...

    That is not the idea. The idea is turning data off when wifi is not around (AND I don't need the data). I prefer to keep the wifi ON all the time, and get the grab of controlling a data toggle to control it as per where I am at.

    It can't be done officially so you'll need to Jailbreak.

    Editing control center is a feature expected to go live in iOS 11. Stay tuned.

    If you never want to use cellular data, you could just turn Cellular off and keep wifi on?

    Shortly after Apple figures out how to make a jailbreak tweak look like an original Apple idea. ;)

    Presumably the user still wants to receive calls and SMS

    Probably wish you had this, but Apple said it was to dangerous for us children to use responsibly.

    It's for the times when the OP claims not to want cellular (which calls and SMS require). Enabling airplane mode turns wifi off but you can quickly turn wifi (and bluetooth) back on, all within Control Center.

    I honestly don't think that is what the op is asking for here. I guess clarification might be needed, but in pretty sure the request is no. Cellular data, not no cellular alltogether.

    I just leave my LTE on all the time, because when I'm on wifi, the iPhone will automatically default to wifi, and so even if LTE is on, it's not using any data.

    Yeah, the OP should clarify what he meant by no data, because simply having wifi on will use that instead of cellular data yet will still allow you to receive calls and SMS.

    lordofthereef is right of what I meant.

    I meant that "whenever" I want the data off (regardless of wifi) I could.

    If I want the data always off why would I ask the question in the first place? :D

    yjchua95, That is an option, but when data is ON and you're not using it, it still send and receive signals as it receives notifications and everything (and no, I don't wish to turn off notifications).

    If it's just notifications and the like it's extremely minor use of data really.

    But overall it sounds like there are times when you are not on WiFi and you want to disable cellular data (while keeping cellular itself enabled for calls and text messages) so that you are basically not using up whatever data allowance you have on your mobile plan, right? The only way to do that on a stock (non-jailbroken) iOS device is to go into settings and change that when you need/want that.
