IOS 11's Control Center doesn't actually turn off Wi-Fi or Bluetooth

IOS 11's Control Center doesn't actually turn off Wi-Fi or Bluetooth

However, the toggles on the control centre won't turn off WiFi or Bluetooth completely, in fact, they disconnect the active connected device.

The radios themselves, however, will keep humming in the background in a low-power state. On the same, Apple has clarified why Control Center doesn't let you turn off WiFi and Bluetooth. It feels a bit jarring at first, but you eventually get accustomed it.

Toggling off Wi-Fi in Control Center now disconnects the device from the network it's connected to, but leaves auto-connect on.

Before giving your iPhone or iPad the OS treatment, make sure your data's all backed up.

After months of beta testing, Apple pushed-out the next-generation mobile operating system to iPhone and iPad users worldwide earlier this week. In fact it does not want to completely turn them off.

The buzz on social media is that now you can secretly record Snapchats, Instagram Stories, and direct messages, and other ephemeral messages without the other person knowing.

The iOS 11 update includes a new "Emergency SOS" function, created to help users discreetly call emergency services quickly without having to dial 999.

To use the one handed keyboard, all you have to do is press the screen and hold down the globe/emoji icon, and three new left, right, and normal icons will appear.

It's so hard to type on your phone if you've only got one hand, which in our busy lives happens a lot. Namely, you'll likely want to trim the few seconds at the beginning and end where you're navigating to and from Control Center.

Like it or not, Apple has chose to keep your iPhone's Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on for quite a lot of "important features" even after you swipe up from the bottom of the display and toggle off the two connectivity options' respective buttons.

The official iOS 11 has finally arrived.

A built-in screen recording feature is present in iOS 11. The notifications screen follows the rules of the lock screen - swiping brings up the camera, etc. Notifications are easily swiped away instead of having to swipe and tap "Clear". Fortunately, there is still a way to turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth altogether.
