Tonight, I’ve started an overnight flight between RJTT and CYYZ. As an indication, the device I’m using is my iPhone XS Max.
I had several questions to ask about overnight flights that I haven’t found yet:
For iPhone users: Does ‘double’ low power mode heat up your device? When I say double, I mean Infinite Flight’s low power mode as well as the iPhones’. I noticed when I woke up early this morning that, contrary to the usual, my iPhone hadn’t charged to 100%. At that point, it was at 79%. It’s been plugged in for now 8 hours, and it’s currently still at 79%.
Is it true that turning on the free view makes your phone consume less power, because less things to render?
My flight plan - from FPLtoIF - usually includes step-climbing. This night, I didn’t fully respect the flight plan and went straight to cruise altitude on a heavy aircraft. Do you think doing that is OK - although not recommended - as long as you remain fully alert until at cruise speed and altitude?
