IOS 11's Control Center doesn't actually turn off Wi-Fi or Bluetooth

However, you should be warned that this is the most drastic of solutions. Don't like the Timer control but would love to add an Alarm control? But while there are plenty of flashy changes in the new update, numerous most worthwhile improvements are tucked away deep in the software, like the ability to permanently silence those annoying in-app review prompts. First of all, go to Control Center followed by tapping the record icon.

You can now record your screen's activity and the control centre is all different and cool and stuff. And yes, it will take advantage of your microphone on the device.

Apple's new mobile operating system iOS 11 might look similar to its predecessor iOS 10, and its functions might be reminiscent of the past, but there are some hidden features any user will want to check out. It supports various types QR codes. This includes when you're using any apps or from any other screens, like the Home screen.

You don't have to go out and spend $700 on a swanky new iPhone.

Additionally, numerous new iOS features are geared towards the iPad, and making it more of a laptop replacement.

Screenshot taking in iOS 11 is a great task. You'll also have to swipe up (not from the bottom of the screen though) to see it. Apple advises users to access iTunes via trusted computers and then connect their devices to the computers. Better yet, you don't need to share the password itself, adding a little security to the scenario.

Do not disturb while driving feature is present in iOS 11. It basically turn off your phone without actually turning it off. Long press on the torch, for instance, and you'll get the option to decide how bright it is. However, you can always customise the feature to allow calls, text from your favorite contacts. Instead, those buttons simply disconnect your iPhone or iPad from connected devices.

The situation is further complicated because both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi will turn back on automatically under specific circumstances.

Andrea Barisani, another security researcher interviewed by Motherboard, emphasized the importance of being able to turn off the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth completely.
