installed iOS 11 and noticed “Turning off Wi-Fi from Control Center does not
turn off WiFi from the settings in iOS 11”? Yes we all did and thought for a
while that this was a bug but it isn’t.
published a support document in which it mentioned that turning off Wi-Fi and
Bluetooth from the Control Center temporally disables the WiFi and Bluetooth
connection to keep radios on for other features like Apple Pencil, Apple Watch,
Location Service, Handoff, Instant Hotspot, Airdrop and Airplay.
and later, when you toggle the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth buttons in Control Center,
your device will immediately disconnect from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth accessories.
Both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will continue to be available, so you can use these
- Apple Pencil
- Apple Watch
features, like Handoff and Instant Hotspot
- Instant Hotspot
thing in mind that it is not a bug but Apple intentionally integrated this
feature into iOS 11.
