Does Airplane Mode Silence All Notifications?

Environment

Answer

No, not necessarily. Airplane mode will turn off the cell antenna, which means that no calls or texts will come through on cell. If the phone is not connected to WiFi, this means that no calls or texts of any kind will come through. However, apps that have push notifications or alarms will still sound in airplane mode.

Additional Notes

It is best to manage/silence notifications through the do not disturb settings.
