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

F-Secure's head of hardware security, Andrea Barisani, who was one of the first to notice the iOS feature, reckons the Control Center toggle is "unintuitive" and problematic since the features are re-enabled in "non obvious" conditions, such as at 5am. The Bluetooth toggle operates in a similar fashion. They are left in the background running to keep features like the file transfer, AirDrop, geolocation services and communications with an Apple Watch intact.

To completely turn off Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, you'll need to go directly to your phone's settings, rather than using Control Center.

Other iPhone users can upgrade their device to the latest iOS 11 by heading to the Settings menu, then click on General, then click on Software Update. After revamping the interface of the Android app in June, Apple is now adding a slew of new features in it.

But in iOS 11, this functionality changes.




However, iOS 11 does not let users completely switch off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth from Control Center.

However, there are also many bugs that make some of iOS 11's features less usable. Once you've finished recording your screen, press this red bar and a pop-up will appear and you can either press cancel to continue recording, or press Stop to end the recording.

This week Apple admitted that a bug in the operating system leaves users locked out of Microsoft's software and receiving a message which reads "Cannot Send Mail".

It's not being touted as one of the major features of iOS 11, but Apple's newly released mobile OS gives you more control over how you share your location data with app makers. We're talking about the radically redesigned Control Center, which is focused on customization more than ever, but perhaps not enough on simplicity and utility. They'll apparently turn back on automatically at 5 AM, so you'll have to do not forget to go turn them back off. On a super basic level, 64-bit apps are going to run much faster than a 32-bit version and take advantage of the current hardware in the iPhone.
