By default, Wi-Fi Assist is turned on. You may disable Wi-Fi Assist if you don't want your iOS device to stay connected to the Internet when your Wi-Fi connection is bad. Go to Cellular or Mobile Data in the Settings menu. Then scroll down and hit the Wi-Fi Assist slider.

Wi-Fi Assist allows you to stay connected to the Internet even if your Wi-Fi connection is weak. For example, if you're using Safari with a bad Wi-Fi connection and a webpage won't load, Wi-Fi Assist will kick in and switch to cellular mode, allowing the webpage to load. Most apps, including Safari, Apple Music, Mail, Maps, and others, support Wi-Fi Assist.
