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

With iOS 11, Apple changed the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on/off switches to toggles which now allow both features to be disabled until the next day. However with iOS 11, Apple tried to be "smart" about it by only temporarily turning off WiFi/Bluetooth, where after 24 hours it will be turned back on.

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.

Articulado de la Metrovía se incendió en Guayaquil
Producto del incidente, no se reportaron víctimas ni heridos, debido a que los usuarios fueron evacuados inmediatamente. Ocurrió la mañana de este lunes 13 de noviembre en el norte de Guayaquil en el sector de la ciudadela La Atarazana .

Since the birth of the control center and prior to iOS 11, those two toggles simply turned Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on or off and had straightforward icons to indicate the two states. Afterwards, you'll see a message that reads "Disconnecting Nearby Wi-Fi Networks Until Tomorrow" or "Disconnecting Bluetooth Devices Until Tomorrow". No where in Apple's on-device documentation actually informs them of that change. This change apparently does not resolve the security concern, which should be minor for most users, but at least it does explain what's happening behind the scenes more clearly so said users can make their own decisions on how to use Control Center. "Bluetooth will continue to be available for Apple Watch, Apple Pencil, Personal Hotspot, and Handoff". Currently Connected accessories will be disconnected and other accessories will not connect. "Wi-Fi will continue to be available for AirDrop, Personal Hotspot, and location accuracy".

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