Apple iPhone 8 launches in China, Japan and Australia; finds few takers

Apple's new Control Center lets you mix and match your favorite shortcuts in iOS11

Indeed, we barely lasted a day on an iPhone 7 with iOS 11 with nearly no use - only one short call and occasional checking of emails.

But two of the most used toggles, the ones for "turning off" wifi and Bluetooth, do not actually switch them off as a user might expect. Replying to a user complaint, Apple software engineering chief Craig Federighi has now confirmed that the app switcher gesture feature was removed due to technical constraints, and should be back in a future iOS 11 update.

According to tech security experts, the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth issue creates an inviting target for hackers. This allows an Apple device to remain available for features like AirDrop, AirPlay, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch, and other services.

So while this is not exactly an apocalyptic bug, you might want to keep in mind to check your iOS 11 device's Settings menu rather than the less time-intensive Control Center app for better security. The latest software update is one of Apple's biggest yet as it brings with a host of new features, improvements, and support for ARKit for developers among others. Your device will immediately disconnect from any non-Apple Wi-Fi and Bluetooth accessories.

The feature stopped working after the iOS 11 update.

Pressing the sleep/wake button on your iPhone five times will now bring up a hidden menu that allows you to "discreetly place a call to emergency services", reports Mac Rumors.

Cnet says you will need to go to settings, control centre and customise controls and select "screen recording" to add the feature to the control centre. If no Bluetooth is available, the phone uses other sources such as nearby Wi-Fi and the accelerometer to try to determine if a user is in the vehicle.

Despite being aware of the problems that users can't send email on iOS 11, both the companies seem to be taken aback by the bug. Using this in conjunction with the new Files app, and you can consolidate your file storage, whether the files live on the iPad, on a network server somewhere in the cloud. Bear in mind, however, that many of its most dramatic enhancements are for the iPad only. You can check out the now removed 3D Touch gesture that accessed the app switcher by clicking the video at the top of the story. Among its many new features is the redesigned Control Center, which lets you toggle Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on and off. kind of.
