A few hours ago Apple released iOS 11.2 beta 3 to developers, the update brings explanations to both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles after receiving backlash when iOS 11 was first released.
Now when you first use disable the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth toggle in Control Center you are given a message which confirms that it will be switched off until the following day and that certain things such as Airdrop and Apple Watch will continue to work. Apart from the 24 hour delay these toggles will reconnect under one of the following conditions occurs:
– Wi-Fi is reactivated using Control Center – You connect to a Wi-Fi network using Settings > Wi-Fi – You walk or drive to a new location – It’s 5:00 a.m. local time – Your iOS device is restarted – Bluetooth is reactivated using control Center – You connect to a Bluetooth accessory in Settings > Bluetooth – It’s 5:00 a.m. local time – Your iOS device is restarted
Once the original explanation goes Apple then provides a small reminder at the top of the screen every time the toggles are used. On the iPhone X, Apple has changed the UI designed to make the Control Center gesture more obvious. Now whenever you’re on the Lock screen, there’s a small bar underneath the icons on the right side of the device, letting you know there’s more to see there. The bar is not displayed on the Home screen of an unlocked iPhone X, nor is it displayed within apps.
