But since a few days the European Union announced its decision to update its regulations so that during air travel you can use mobile coverage at maximum speed, 5G, claiming that “the sky is no longer the limit for high speed and capacity”. With this premise, the EU practically puts the existence of the airplane mode in the trigger. What about if He airplane mode ceases to exist, your servant is going to miss him very much.
some premises. The airplane mode came up with the aim of facilitating communications between air traffic controllers and the cabin crew, since the waves from the passengers’ phones could bother with interference and noise. But the airplane mode also reached the gas stations, since according to the Article 115 of the general traffic regulationsusers or workers of these cannot supply fuel if “devices that emit electromagnetic radiation such as mobile phones” are not turned off. urban legend or not, the reality is that it is strange not to have seen someone pay with the phone next to the pump.
On the one hand, the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) already gave the go-ahead to use phones in the air in 2014 and on the other, this announcement from the EU. The fact is that the combination of both constitutes practically the death knell of airplane mode. But while this arrives, I will continue to enjoy this function.
I use airplane mode the most is when I’m not on a plane
Me star use of Airplane Mode is to save battery, something that comes in handy when I’m away from home and logically you need the working phone for any emergency or simply to communicate. Note: for these cases, our recommendation is that get an external batteryinseparable travel companion.
And it is that by deactivating data, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the energy cost derived from its data transfers tends to zero. What do you have to make an emergency call or check if they have written to you? You activate them again and that’s it.
I also activate airplane mode when i need my phone to charge as fast as possible. Leaving aside that this speed is limited by the charging technology of your phone and that you have a cable and a sufficiently fast and compatible charger To achieve it, it is a matter of considering an energy balance: for a given amount of energy that enters, if we reduce the output by cutting off that connectivity devourer of energy, then The accumulated wins, that is, the percentage of your battery.
My third use for airplane mode has is WhatsApp ninja: read messages without the other person knowing that I have read them (although it’s not the only way to do it). And it is that when you receive WhatsApp messages on your phone and they are pending reading, if you activate the airplane mode you can open said messaging app to view them. It won’t be until you turn it off again that this update hits the server.
