Smart Phone Optimisation – Keep Yours Secure

5 min read

Many individuals are well-acquainted with the functionality of Airplane Mode on their devices, often employing it during travels to distant and exotic destinations. However, it’s worth noting that Airplane Mode serves a purpose beyond catering to globetrotters; it can significantly enhance your everyday life. Below, we present compelling reasons to consider activating Airplane Mode, even when not embarking on a journey.

1. Prolong Your Battery Life

Aeroplane Mode can be a valuable tool for anyone who desires extended smartphone battery longevity. This feature effectively disables all communication functions, encompassing Wi-Fi, cellular data, and Bluetooth. This proves invaluable when your battery is dwindling and you require your phone to endure until a charging opportunity arises.

2. Accelerate Charging Speed

In moments of panic when your phone’s battery is on the verge of depletion and needs a rapid recharge, try a clever trick: enable Airplane Mode before plugging it in. Studies reveal that phones charge approximately four times faster in this mode. Your phone conserves energy by avoiding notifications synchronisation, update checks, and network connections, resulting in quicker charging times.

3. An Escape from Notifications

Amid life’s chaos, the occasional respite from incessant notifications is a welcome reprieve. Activating Airplane Mode bestows the gift of serenity and tranquillity, even if only for a brief respite. This respite allows you to relish some quality “me” time, free from the intrusion of social media alerts or work-related emails—a digital oasis of your own making.

4. Engage Focus Mode

Maintaining focus can be challenging, whether at work, during study sessions, or while pursuing creative endeavours, given the abundance of distractions. Airplane Mode can serve as your go-to tool for combatting these interruptions. You’ll find it easier to concentrate on your current task by severing the internet connection. So, remember to engage Airplane Mode when you need to enter a state of focused productivity.

5. Prevent Awkward Moments

Imagine being in a crucial meeting when your phone unexpectedly blares an embarrassingly loud ringtone. Or, even with the ringer muted, your phone vibrates vigorously upon receiving a call or notification. When silence is golden, these awkward moments can be avoided by utilising Airplane Mode. You can still utilise your phone for note-taking or accessing offline content, free from the fear of inadvertent disruptions.

6. Bid Farewell to Roaming Woes

In areas with poor cellular reception, phones often exhaustively search for a signal, resulting in battery depletion. Airplane Mode can prove indispensable in such scenarios. By activating it, you prevent your phone from incessantly searching for a network, preserving precious battery power and safeguarding against connecting to potentially risky networks.

7. Experience a Digital Detox

Occasionally, everyone requires a hiatus from the digital realm, whether to reconnect with loved ones, indulge in outdoor activities, or be present in the moment. Airplane Mode enables a temporary disconnection from the online world while retaining access to your phone’s offline features.

8. Mitigate Concerns About Radiation

While the health risks of mobile phone radiation remain controversial, some individuals opt for caution. Enabling Airplane Mode reduces your phone’s radiation emissions by disabling most communication features. If you harbour concerns about exposure, employing Airplane Mode can provide peace of mind.

9. Manage Data Usage and Expenses

For individuals with limited data plans, activating Airplane Mode can be a strategic tool for regulating data consumption and avoiding unexpected charges. This approach proves particularly astute as you approach the end of your billing cycle, aiming to stay within your data limit.

In summary, Airplane Mode is not exclusively reserved for frequent flyers; it represents a versatile feature that can enhance various aspects of your daily life. Whether conserving battery life, expediting charging, enjoying respite from notifications, boosting focus, preventing embarrassing moments, overcoming roaming challenges, experiencing a digital detox, or addressing radiation concerns, Airplane Mode emerges as a digital ally in an increasingly connected world. Don’t hesitate to explore its benefits, even when you’re firmly grounded.

I've known Lewis since working with him at CIFF in 2011. More recently, he has built-up an excellent business which supports a number of my past and present clients. He also supports my business. Lewis is first rate and equally importantly, he has built a good team around him to provide quality, responsive IT support. I can't recommend Penntech highly enough.
