How to Put Your MacBook in Airplane Mode
MacBooks come equipped with a built-in Airplane Mode option, which disables all wireless communications on your device, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular data. This feature is especially useful while on a flight or in an area with limited network coverage where you want to conserve battery life.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to put your MacBook in Airplane Mode:
Method 1: Using the Menu Bar
1. Look for the menu bar located at the top of the screen on your MacBook and click on the Wi-Fi icon.
2. In the drop-down menu that appears, click on “Turn Wi-Fi Off” to disable Wi-Fi on your device.
3. To disable Bluetooth, click on the Apple menu at the top left corner of your screen and select “System Preferences.”
4. In the System Preferences window, click on the Bluetooth icon and then click on the “Turn Bluetooth Off” button.
5. To activate Airplane Mode, repeat the above steps, but this time click on the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth icons while holding down the “Option” key. This will reveal the “Turn Airplane Mode On/Off” option, which you can click to activate Airplane Mode.
Method 2: Using Keyboard Shortcuts
1. Press the “Control” key and the “Command” key simultaneously on your MacBook’s keyboard.
2. This will open the Airplane Mode options window and you can click “Turn On” to activate it.
3. To turn off Airplane Mode, simply repeat the above steps, but this time click “Turn Off” instead.
