A tech guru has shared a little-known hack to help iPhone users boost their signal — it’s quick, easy, and can be done anywhere.
TikTok user Scott Polderman regularly shares tips with his 1.4 million followers, and he recently turned his attention to the well-known scenario of the signal going out.
We’ve all been there, just when you think you should have plenty of signal there are no bars – or maybe you’ve called someone and they can’t hear what you’re saying.
Scott uploading to TikTok as @scottpoldermannsaid all you have to do is toggle Airplane mode on and off – and you’ll have more signal in no time.
What do you think of Scott’s tip? Let us know in the comments…
This hack works because there is a modem in your phone that it uses to connect to nearby towers, which allows your phone to connect to others.
But it drains the battery to check for new towers, so the checks to save power are only done intermittently.
However, you can get your phone to do this early by turning the plane off and on again.
All you have to do is open the control center by swiping down from the top right corner of your iPhone and then clicking on the airplane icon.
