IOS 11: 15 Hidden Features We Bet You Won't Know!

The main controls for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on Apple's newly launched iOS 11 software can not actually be used to turn those features off.

The radios themselves, however, will keep humming in the background in a low-power state. It means AirDrop, AirPlay and Location Services will still work even if you tap Bluetooth and Wi-Fi off.

If you do want to disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi completely, you'll need to do it in the Apple device's settings menu, which deactivates them until 5 am the next morning. Or you can do it yourself from Control Center. Wi-Fi is also re-enabled if you walk or drive to a new location. While it's nearly useless with a locked phone it's handy when you're using your phone and want to show someone else what you're doing. Potential problems in Bluetooth that allow people to take control of phones can't now be easily avoided - and people might leave themselves exposed to those security problems while believing that they've actually shut their connections off entirely. But if Cupertino feels it's more convenient this way, it's unlikely to change anytime soon. "But the most important additions to iOS 11 on the iPad come in the form of multitasking features, like the ability to quickly switch between apps or use two programs at once".

The situation is further complicated because both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi will turn back on automatically under specific circumstances. Simply being in range of an infected device is sufficient to pass the virus along. The change in layout makes the software update even more appealing to the user.

Eventually, devices in range will start to reconnect under a list of specific circumstances, that - and let's be clear on this - is not the same as if you turned the ruddy things off.

Security experts generally agree that one of the safest methods of preventing hackers from gaining access to devices is to regularly turn the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth features off when not in use. The feature shines on iPad, but you can also use it on iPhone in select apps including the Notes and Camera apps.
