The iPhone has great connection management

Since Apple released iOS 12, it is possible to use the iPhone with Airplane Mode turned on and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections active. Using your iPhone in this way can be beneficial in certain situations, and we’re going to tell you what they are and why you should do it when those assumptions occur.

There’s also the option to use your iPhone without active Mobile Data, which allows you to save battery life if you use it only with an active Wi-Fi connection. But in this article, we’re going to focus on using the iPhone with Airplane Mode active, having Wi-Fi and Bluetooth operational.

Here’s how to use Wi-Fi with Airplane Mode on iPhone

If you want to use the Wi-Fi connection on your iPhone while you have Airplane Mode active, the steps you have to follow are as follows:

  1. First of all, open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Activate Airplane Mode.
  3. Then we get into the Wi-Fi section.
  4. We turned on the Wi-Fi connection.
  5. We connect to the desired network.

There are several scenarios where using the iPhone with Airplane Mode active is a good option, such as when we are on board a plane that offers Wi-Fi connection. This way, your iPhone doesn’t interfere in any way with the flight and you can still enjoy your device.

This means thatactivating Airplane Mode does not mean having other connections such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth disabled. Thanks to the flexibility of the settings, we can continue to use connectivity without causing interference on a flight.

Since we’re talking about Airplane Mode, we remind you that the iPhone has a setting with which you can block your access to it when it’s locked. This is a setting that allows you to only access Control Center if you authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID.
