The new Control Center in iOS 11 is one of the most hyped features as all the key functions are housed in one place. But it turns out the redesigned Control Centre in the latest version of iOS has one glaring issue.
As there’s some confusion over the functionality of these controls. In earlier versions of the iOS, tapping on the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi widget completely activated or deactivated these functions.
But with iOS 11 things appear to be slightly different. As tapping on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi widgets in iOS 11’s Control Center just disables the connection with Bluetooth devices or Wi-Fi networks, and does not actually turn-off these functions entirely.
It remains unclear as to why would Apple do so in the latest version iOS. Also, the company seems to have done this on purpose which has been detailed in a documentation. Hence, there’s clearly a reason as to why Apple decided to go this route in iOS 11’s Control Center. We believe it could be related to cellular capabilities on the new Apple Watch 3.
The reason could be that users stay connected to their Apple Watch, and just disconnect them from rest of the sources. Now, this isn’t what users would normally expect and cause unnecessary battery drain. That said, it doesn’t mean you can’t completely disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth in iOS 11. It just that you’ll have to go to Settings and disable these functions from there.
The latest iOS 11 has finally started arriving on compatible devices. These include the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone SE, iPhone 5s will NOT get the latest version of iOS.
The latest version of iOS will also be available for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (second generation), 12.9-inch iPad Pro (first generation), 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, iPad (fifth generation), iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad Mini 4, 3 and 2. In addition, even the sixth generation iPod Touch is eligible to get the new iOS update. Sadly, legacy devices including the likes of iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or iPhone 5C are not eligible for the new iOS 11 update.
