Enable or disable Wi-Fi

If we want to download larger amounts of data, such as apps or updates, to the OnePlus smartphone, it is recommended that we are connected to a Wi-Fi network.
It does not matter whether a public or private network is used.
To connect to a Wi-Fi network, the general function must first be activated.

Note: Wi-Fi can also be (de)activated at any time using the quick settings, which also has a positive effect on battery consumption.
