Turning off all electronic devices when an airplane is about to take off or land has long been a part of the air travel experience. While turning off the device entirely satisfies these requests, you can also elect to turn on Airplane Mode in some cases.
Your iPhone 6 has a dedicated “Airplane Mode” that will automatically toggle off a lot of features, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and your cellular connection. This will prevent you from doing a lot of things, such as making phone calls, sending text messages, or accessing the Internet, but it will allow you to do anything else on the iPhone that does not require any of those functions. Our guide below will show you two different ways that you can turn Airplane Mode on or off on your iPhone 6.
