Likely to Bluetooth, wifi etc, With default our mobile scans the nearest telecom operator to grab the cellular network. At the time when your device is far away from networks then the inbuilt modems boost your device to grab the nearest network. This makes high interactions to make the low-metered networks available for the device.
So, When you are inside an aeroplane travelling to a specific place where no signals are available on the flight. Our mobile device starts searching for the networks with high transmission signals.
The use of high transmission signals by your mobile interacts with the transmission signals of the aeroplane’s sensors and navigation system etc. Which results in creating problems and also in few scenarios leads to a flight crash.

It’s not that if you do not turn your device off or turn on flight mode the plane might get crashed. It’s because most people forget to follow those precautions and where few cases arise which distracts pilots.
