I just realized I can go to a webpage on my cell phone and put the phone on airplane mode while I read the page. To go to a different page, I can take it off airplane mode until the page displays. Then back to airplane mode. I’m assuming (though I don’t yet have a meter) that I’m giving myself some protection this way. Though I seldom read web pages on my cell phone, and though this way to read on a cell phone may be well known to others, it just occurred to me today that this might be a protection. Any info or thoughts from others?

Hi ps, welcome to the forum. In theory airplane mode should cut all RF transmissions, but the only way to be sure would be to check with a meter. I have seen suggestions that with some phones it may not kill wifi, which has to be done separately. Also some phones may misbehave even when switched off (see https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/…..r-security (not sure if this is a trustworthy source). But yours is a neat idea if it’s not too inconvenient.

If you are using any Apple device Airplane mode should not be an option, since it will annoy you with too many warnings even if you are using an app that doesn’t require internet access for all its features. And these warnings keep appearing even if ETHERNET MODE is being used in the iPAD/iPhone. They can’t be disabled.

That’s why it would be preferable to disable wi-fi and then bluetooth, one at a time, not both with Airplane mode, in my opinion. And starting with iOS 11 if you wish to disable them COMPLETELY you need to visit iOS internal settings, doing that from the Control Center only deactivates them temporarily:

My suggestion is to use adapters for Ethernet, if you wish to stop using wi-fi in the Apple device. I explained in this thread what are the ones you should buy:

https://forums.macrumors.com/t…..o.1974288/

P.S. I advise against turning airplane mode ON and OFF multiple times because when you reenable wi-fi in your device the radiation levels increase instantly. If they are 0.20 with airplane mode enabled they might rise to 1.20 and then a second later decrease to 0.60 or 0.70.

I don’t think that fluctuation in the levels can be good. So it would be better if you don’t do this many times every single day. Use airplane mode when you have to, just don’t abuse the feature since the spikes may be more detrimental.

Hi Perene, the thread you link to is interesting , as I’m trying to help a friend wire a Macbook, and my Apple knowledge is nil. I will read it more carefully and suggest that she gets the components you suggest from Apple. We have a compatible adapter (from Ugreen) which my son got working on his Mac (without a camera adapter) , but I can’t identify the device driver and the CD has disappeared.
I think your suggestion to avoid these ‘spikes’ is sound. Someone (Martin Pall?) has suggested that even one nano-second pulse can have a biological effect.
I’ve also encountered the issue of ‘off’ (eg Airplane mode) not always meaning what we would expect – especially where Apple is concerned. The advice was to do as you suggest and disable in Settings. I would double-check with a meter if you have one.
