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

One of the biggest updates in iOS 11 is the new Control Center, which Apple has completely overhauled.

It is unclear why Apple has decided to make such amends in iOS 11 as a lot of users would find the process tedious and annoying. Everything now fits in one page in the iOS 11 Control Center, but the simplified look also came with a few unwanted changes.

With a just touch of a button (you can add it to your Control Centre), you can now record everything that happens on your screen.

You can add up to 13 permanent apps to your Dock by using the new Drag and Drop feature in iOS 11.

In iOS 11, it only partially disables Bluetooth, disconnecting a device from accessories it's connected to, but leaving it available for features like Handoff, Instant Hotspot, AirDrop, AirPlay, Apple Pencil, and Location Services.

In the real world we would call that a software bug, but in Apple's "lets peddle borked products anyway" reality distortion field it really is a feature and Jobs' Mob intended it.

Apple has just released iOS 11 to iPhones and the company, based on its latest advertising campaign, wants users to be more thrilled about the new App Store than any other feature about the OS.

Apple explains in a support document that for the "best experience" on your iPhone, you should always try to keep Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on.

Users who would like to completely turn of WiFi or Bluetooth on their iOS 11 device will not be able to enjoy the convenience of the Control Center. The larger question is how Apple controls which devices can connect to the iPhone in this mode. As a result, they could become at risk of being hacked or get sent unwanted messages as the recent Bluetooth vulnerability that affects over 5 billion devices has shown.

But security researchers warn that users might not realize this and, as a outcome, could leave Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on without noticing. You can open apps so that they're running side by side using the dock, and you can use them in split screen.
