Cool hidden airplane mode feature in iPhone. The iOS operating system never ceases to amaze us with its capabilities. The other day during the flight, we discovered an interesting hidden function of the seemingly simple airplane mode in the iPhone.
Need Bluetooth or Wi-Fi during your flight? For example, want to listen to music through AirPods?
It turns out that iOS allows you to configure the disconnection of individual wireless modules when connecting to airplanemode. Here’s how it works.
First of all, turn on airplane mode in the standard control panel (swipe from bottom to top or top to bottom, depending on the iPhone model). All modules will automatically shut down. This is normal.
Now we turn on the wireless Internet via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth protocol (together or separately). We use a smartphone, listen to music, watch movies. If you’re lucky and there is Wi-Fi on the plane, surf the net, chat with friends, and so on.
Disable airplane mode. And now, when you turn it back on, the previously enabled modules will remain active. Your connection to headphones or any other wireless headset or Wi-Fi network will not be interrupted.
This obvious but useful hidden feature of the seemingly so clear and simple airplane mode provides the ability not to disable one or both wireless modules during its activation.
