Airplane Mode is available on all smartphones. So what's going on with the phone in this mode? Will it charge faster? Does Bluetooth work?What about the alarms? Let me try briefly. What happens in Airplane Mode? When you switch your phone to flight mode, you will immediately notice a few changes. The options of the service provider disappear, telephone calls cannot be made, internet connection is disconnected. What airplane mode does is turn off all radio stations .The purpose of this is to prevent these signals from interfering with the various receiver and sensor circuits of the aircraft. In practice this means not being able to make phone calls, send SMS and not run any program that requires internet (including messaging applications such as WhatsApp).
In fact, it is technically possible to search, but of course you need to broadcast to answer the call because the search mode can not work.The GPS job is a little complicated. In fact, GPS only receives signals from satellites, nothing is sent out. However, many phone manufacturers also turn off GPS in flight mode. Although it's clear, I doubt it will work. If you don't have the odd habits of downloading the whole world map (not in most map applications), your phone will still need an internet connection to find your location. Similarly, Bluetooth
Disabling. Of course, this means that your Bluetooth-enabled wireless headphones and keyboards cannot be used. Bluetooth is actually a system with very low transmit power. Some of the planes have their own Wi-Fi systems and are much more powerful than Bluetooth.Therefore, if your phone allows it, you can turn Bluetooth on in sleep mode. Nevertheless, turn on the electronic devices at permitted times, of course. It's 2016. Are the planes still affected by the phones?
The use of mobile devices on airplanes was banned in 1991 due to the concern that aircraft could interfere with electronic systems and communications with the tower. As recently as 2013, the flight mode was added to all phones and enabled the use of some of the phone's functions once the planes were at a certain height.
This ban, 25 years ago, has of course been questioned many times over the past years. Of course, the research is being carried on with great care, after all, the lives of tens, even hundreds of people. The lack of electronic equipment ensures that the passengers are at least comfortable. And I think it's good for the airlines. Imagine that everyone is talking on their cell phone on a plane of 150 people! While a baby cannot bear to cry in a narrow environment such as an airplane, everyone's phone calls to shout create complete chaos. Nevertheless, there is no accident that has been proven to be caused by a mobile device, and it is worth noting.
One of the most important reasons why cell phones are not allowed in aircraft is the danger of interfering with the communication between pilots and the tower and causing a critical conversation to be missed. If you put your mobile phone near a radio or speaker, you may hear the noise. Imagine that the 150 phones on the plane are on and trying to connect to the base stations. Since the base stations will remain far away, especially when the aircraft is in the air, the telephones will also maximize transmitter power. It will be a very important source of interference. Is flight mode useful for other tasks? There may be times when flight mode is useful, not only when on board, but also in normal use.
For example, let's say you sent an SMS to the wrong person. You can try to switch the phone to flight mode immediately. If you are lucky, sending SMS will be interrupted and you can delete the SMS. If you switch the phone to airplane mode while charging, you can charge it faster . It can work especially when you are in a hurry. Since you can't be called from the outside, you can listen to some head. The phone also doesn't bother looking for GPS and Wi-Fi signals, so it's a bit of a battery benefit.
Free games usually show annoying ads, you know. Play in airplane mode if the game itself does not require an internet connection. Will not be able to show ads. If you give your device to your children to play games, airplane mode can also protect your pocket. If there are payment options in-game, I think let them play only in airplane mode.Which applications work or not? First, the alarm functions are working. Therefore, for example, you can put the phone into flight mode while lying down and sleep comfortably without fear of electromagnetic waves. Reminder functions on the calendar also work smoothly. However, alerts over the network (for example, a warning from your computer) will not work.
It is of course not possible to receive and send emails. However, you can read your inbox messages and even write new e-mail. Of course, your new e-mail will be sent as soon as you connect to the network, waiting in the outbox until you exit airplane mode. You guys still check to see if he's gone. Emergency calls will not work, unfortunately. When you attempt to make a normal or urgent call, you will receive a warning that you are in airplane mode. Since weather applications also require internet connection, current weather information cannot be receive
News sites and so on. can not be used because it requires internet connection. In such cases I would recommend an application like Pocket. Pocket allows you to download websites you have added to your list into memory, allowing you to read them even if you do not have an internet connection. You can also see your notes. But this applies to the simple note applications of the phone. OneNote, Google Keep and similar applications need internet connection from time to time. Some of the notes may have problems (if not cached). The notes you receive will only be synchronized when your internet connection comes back
Your camera will be running smoothly. If you automatically save your pictures to iCloud, Google Drive or a similar cloud service, synchronization will be complete once the internet connection is established. iTunes, AppStore, Google Play and similar media will not work unless the internet. If you have already downloaded it to your phone, you can watch videos and listen to music. Of course you'll have to forget YouTube and the like. Siri, Google Assistant, and similar services rely heavily on internet connectivity, making them useless in airplane mode. You can also play games that do not need an Internet connection. Of course, games like Pokemon Go that need GPS or download something from the internet before it starts are out of categor
Is it useful? As a matter of fact, we use it from necessity on the plane, it is useful in this respect. I think you will feel the benefit of airplane mode when you want to listen to your head. Sometimes I really want the phone to stand aside, without disturbing me. As I mentioned above, if you're sleeping with the phone at your bedside, it's the right decision for your health to put the phone in flight mode.Anyway, the alarm's still on.
