IOS 11.2 Will Explain Control Center's WiFi/Bluetooth Toggles

In iOS 11 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. It turned on/off WiFi and Bluetooth. The alerts were introduced in today's iOS 11.2 beta 3 release.

Users who wanted to completely disable WiFi or Bluetooth had to go into the Settings app to do so, which while not terribly inconvenient, isn't particularly efficient and kind of defeats the point of the shortcuts in the first place. The big change with this update is the addition of pop-ups in the Control Center that explain how the new Bluetooth and Wi-Fi toggles work. Even more confusing was the fact that iOS 11 used the old "off" state to mean something different. There wasn't any in-device explanation that the wi-fi chips or Bluetooth remained on, leaving the phones open to potential wireless attacks during a zero day vulnerability or enabled through malware.

You walk or drive to a new location.

"Disconnecting Nearby Wi-Fi Until Tomorrow".

Wi-Fi (Bluetooth) is reactivated using Control Center. Currently Connected accessories will be disconnected and other accessories will not connect.

Apple's argument for the change in behavior is to let "critical" features, like Apple Pencil, Apple Watch, AirDrop, continue working even after users think they've turned off Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. While somewhat understandable, users argue that they should have at least been informed of that fact.

Apple's developers are seemingly testing whether that element of the design needs a formal fix, per MacRumors.
