Control Center’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles now display a rather strange behavior under iOS 11. When you tap on the buttons they seem to disconnect from Bluetooth connections and Wi-Fi networks however they don’t really turn off. Apple explains that this is because iOS wants to keep these system features on, so they can be used with features like AirDrop, Continuity and accessories like the Apple Watch.
So how can you really turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on your iOS 11 powered iPhone or iPad? Follow the steps below.
- Open Settings and go to Wi-Fi Settings.
- Turn off Wi-Fi switch to completely turn off the Wi-Fi functionality.
- Similarly from the main Settings page go to Bluetooth.
- Now turn off the Bluetooth switch to complete turn off the Bluetooth functionality.
In this video we give you a quick demonstration of the steps mentioned above. Watch the video below to see what’s actually going on with the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles on your iOS 11 powered iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
