What Are the Rules For Gadgets On A Flight These Days Anyhow?

New Rules For Gadgets On The Plane


In recent months there is something missing when you board the plane, take your seat, and meet your flight crew. There is no more announcements to turn off all your electronic devices. That's right. Now you are able to read e-books, play games, and watch videos on your devices during most phases of flight. Larger electronic devices such as laptops and tablets, books, and other loose items do need to be put in the seat back pocket during the actual takeoff and landing. Phones can stay in your hands. FAA found, after a review, that personal electronic devices, such as your smartphone or tablet, will not interfere with a plane's functionality.

In- flight Travel Gadgets 
All phones should be in airplane mode or with cellular services disabled. FCC regulations prohibit any airborne calls using cell phones. You can use Wi-Fi if your airline provides the service during flight. You can also continue to use short-range Bluetooth accessories, like wireless keyboards.

Otherwise, you can do just about anything that doesn't require data transfer on your smartphones and tablets. You can keep playing video games, watching movies, listening to music, and reading e-books as your plane takes off and lands.

WiFi
That is of course if you have pre-download all these onto your gadget prior to take off. And also charged your device (Charge Your Gadget Before You Travel, Or Else). Airlines typically turn on access to onboard Wi-Fi once a flight reaches the cruising altitude of 10,000 feet. But using that Wi-Fi can be expensive and painfully slow. If airlines were to offer expanded Wi-Fi service, even during takeoff and landing, you likely still wouldn't be able to do things like stream videos from Netflix or download iPad games as that would be very expensive. Though if you don't mind spending some cash for access, you're free to post to Facebook or Twitter while in the air.

Exceptions
In rare instances of severe weather with low-visibility, as per FAA, the crew will instruct passengers to turn off their devices during landing.

Passenger reaction:

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am. I'm excited to be able to read books on my iPad the entire flight

Smaller Apple iPhone and iPad - Great for Travel


Smaller Apple iPhone and iPad - Great for Travel

Apple just held its annual Spring event to unveil new versions of iPhone and iPad. Both of them have improved technology on the inside, but most importantly, they are both smaller than the versions before them.
The new iPhone SE has a 4 inch retina display. Going back to the iPhone 5 versions' size. However, it has the the same advanced chip used in iPhone 6s. Giving you more and faster processing power. Graphics performance is also the same as on 6S, with capability to capture 4K video.
iPhone SE is light and compact phone designed to fit comfortably in your hand, pocket, and bag. For travel, I think it makes for a good change since you get the power and camera of a larger device within a smaller unit.

New iPad Pro will have a 9.7 inch screen, which is the same size as the original iPad. And will have the power, camera, and display resolution of the larger brethren. This more powerful iPad is more suited for travel with its smaller frame.

It does not look like much of a change or innovation in the announcement. Quite the opposite, as the devices are shrinking rather than increasing in size as they have in previous years. The size and the power of both of these gadgets, however, is what makes them a better travel companions.
