Wi-Fi And Bluetooth Updates In iOS 11
iOS 11 revealed many new iPhone features. Among these is a completely new control center. It does not only show important settings well-organized on one page but can also be individualized. However, Apple concealed one thing: The Bluetooth and Wi-Fi icons do no longer deactivate the whole function but only the current connection.
AirDrop and AirPlay still work
This supposed problem is, in fact, no bug but an intended new setting Apple even dedicated an own support page to. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are supposed to stay active to enable the usage of important services such as AirDrop, AirPlay, Handoff, Instant Hotspot and location services. Apple also wants to ensure a steady connection to the Apple Watch and the Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro.
If you want to deactivate Wi-Fi and Bluetooth completely you have to do so via the settings app. We show you how!
