The redesigned Control Center is more functional and intuitive. It’s like a one-stop platform from where you can carry out a number of tasks like instantly turning off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. However, with the introduction of latest iOS ecosystem, Apple has slightly tweaked the way these two toggles function. From now onwards, when you disable WiFi and Bluetooth on your iOS 11 device from Control Center, they won’t be completely turned off.
To be more precise, Control Center’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth buttons don’t deactivate radios. They let you disconnect your device only with the connected accessories. They continue to run in the background to let you use AirDrop, Apple Pencil, AirPlay, Apple Watch, Location Services, Instant Hotspot, and Handoff. Though it’s a well-thought-out change to enhance your user-experience, there are times when you may want to completely disable those buttons and not let them run in the background.

I don’t think this little change in the behavior of these two buttons please everyone. Personally, I would prefer to go back to the previous rule as it was a bit simple. What do you think of it? Share your valuable feedback in the comments below.
