As with most smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S10 phones have their version of what’s commonly called Airplane Mode. Basically, turning on Airplane Mode on the Galaxy S10 shuts down all wireless hardware (cellular, Wi-Fi and even Bluetooth) until Airplane Mode is turned off again. Airplane Mode was put into most phones because up until a few years ago, airlines did not allow the use of connected smartphones while in flight. While many airlines have since relaxed those restrictions, Airplane Mode can still be a useful feature if you want to converse battery life, or if you just don’t want to get any calls or texts on your phone for a while.
If you want some peace and quiet while still using your smartphone for other tasks, here’s how to turn on Airplane Mode on your Samsung Galaxy S10 phone.
