As with location information, tap 'Bluetooth' from privacy.

In iOS 13, if there is an app that recently requested Bluetooth, the app name will be displayed here. There is no problem with apps that use Bluetooth accessing Bluetooth, but if an app that does not use Bluetooth is accessing Bluetooth, setting it to not access will save a little battery.

Airplane mode is a mode in which radio waves are not emitted from the terminal. Underground or in places far away from the base station, the terminal frequently searches for the base station in an attempt to secure communication, and the battery drains significantly. Therefore, if you know that communication is not possible anyway, it is recommended that you switch to airplane mode.

If you are using an iPhone 6, 7, or 8, press and hold the side button to display the power off slider.
