Recently, I gleefully posted about Apple finally making Airplane Mode (along with other settings) quickly available via iOS 7’s new Control Center feature. Turning on Airplane Mode prior to shooting video will prevent your otherwise awesome footage from being wrecked by the audio glitches that often accompany radio interference.

After posting that story, I received several emails, asking how to turn on (and off) Airplane Mode in the current version if iOS. Not to worry, fellow filmmakers. It’s no big deal, and you should do it every time you shoot. Here’s how:

On the iPhone

1. Lauch the Settings app

1. Lauch the Settings app2

2. Tap the Airplane Mode toggle switch

2. Tap the Airplane Mode toggle switch2

On iPad & iPad Mini

1. Lauch the Settings app

Some video camera apps require that you remain connected to a wireless network (streaming video, multi-camera, etc.). In those cases, turn on Airplane Mode (effectively turning off all of your wireless connections), and then turn on just the network type you need (wi-fi, bluetooth, etc.). Make sure your clips are glitch-free before wrapping your actors.
