Why Iphone WiFi switch to LTE?

What is the difference between Wi-Fi and LTE?
LTE offers ultra-fast connection speed and is suitable for handling high-bandwidth applications on mobile devices. It can provide data transfer speeds between 100 Mbps (100 megabits per second) and 1 Gbps (one gigabit per second). However, the current WiFi standard is between 10 and 25 Mbps.
Which is better Wi-Fi or LTE?
LTE technologies provide data transfer speeds between 100 megabits per second (100 Mbps) and one Gigabit per second (1 Gbps). The Wi-Fi standard specifies data transfer speeds between 11 Mbps, 54 Mbps, 600 Mbps, and 1 Gbps, depending on the specification. So in terms of range, 4G LTE is more capable.
Is LTE more secure than WiFi?
A. In a typical 4G LTE network connection, your data is encrypted and your identity is authenticated and protected. Wi-Fi networks, on the other hand, can vary widely when it comes to security. Although 4G LTE connections are generally considered more secure, the software is not impenetrable.
