When you toggle Bluetooth and Wi-Fi off from the new Control Center, it doesn't turn them off.

The radios themselves, however, will keep humming in the background in a low-power state. We will continue to explore iOS 11 and if we find additional features we think you'll like, we'll update this article.

First of all, it's likely you're using your smartphone a little more frequently. With the device set to ship Friday, Apple has admitted that the company has "discovered that when Apple Watch Series 3 joins unauthenticated Wi-Fi networks without connectivity, it may at times prevent the watch from using cellular".

If you own an iPhone 6s or later, you are likely aware of the Live Photos feature which lets you capture live stills. iOS 11 now lets you edit those photos so you can apply an effect such as loop or bounce.

A number of users noticed the two connections were still turned on after accessing the settings icon, the one that sits near messages, utilities and calendar. Pop that recorder open, and you can easily save a video of any "disappearing" Snapchat or Instagram Story. But here are some tips and tricks that every iOS 11 software users should know.

The screen recording feature comes packaged with the free iOS 11 update, though you need to tweak something in your Settings if you want it to appear in your Control Center. Using Force Touch on flashlight will bring up a slider that lets you control the intensity of the light.

It's not really the dark mode that you were looking for, but head on to Accessibility in the Settings app and enable Smart Invert. When you access notifications, it no longer looks like a separate screen. Just go to the Settings page and activate the Type to Siri option in the Siri menu.

Like it or not, Apple has chose to keep your iPhone's Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on for quite a lot of "important features" even after you swipe up from the bottom of the display and toggle off the two connectivity options' respective buttons.

Additionally, numerous new iOS features are geared towards the iPad, and making it more of a laptop replacement. From the Control Center, tap the record button.
