Certain settings on your phone have shortcuts built in. Let's say the plane's captain is preparing for take-off and a flight attendant just told you to use Airplane mode. With a few swipes, you’ll be good to go. To access Quick settings, swipe down from the top of a Home screen using two fingers. To turn on or off a Quick setting, touch the desired setting. You can also swipe left to view more Quick settings.
