Choose iPod touch settings for travel

When you travel with iPod touch, choose settings that comply with airline requirements. Some airlines let you keep your iPod touch turned on if you switch to airplane mode. By default, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are disabled in airplane mode—you can’t make or receive FaceTime calls or use features that require wireless communication, but you can listen to music, play games, watch videos, and use other apps that don’t require network connections.
