Not sure why people want to accept the change. People want to be able to control. That’s why control center exist, to control the hardware very simply and easily without having to go through multiple layers in settings. People are used to the control center and were happy. So why do people want to accept this ? There is no advantage to the consumer. Only for Apple. WiFi based location tracking. Bluetooth beacon to track as well. Why would people defend this change? What gain is it for you? People want the convenience they are used to that already existed. Apple is removing convenience features for their gain and the customers loss. And with iOS 11 being a hatefest and a drainfest , why would any customer want any feature that drains more energy? Why do people complain about other people complaining ? These fanboys are enjoying the features from people who criticize to have a better iPhone in the product. Yes I do realize the irony. I’m complaining about complainers aka fanboys who complain about complainers hahaha

Aren't EFF the jailbreak fanboys? They are just upset that there isn't a button to enable 'piracy mode' in the Control Centre.

MUKAI.... Daddy, just because we could jailbreak in the past didn't mean it was just for "piracy"! Now suck it!!!

Not sure what the problem is. The function of the WiFi and Bluetooth buttons in Control Center is CLEARLY EXPLAINED. RTFM. What? You don't like reading manuals? That isn't Apple's fault. The iPhone is an extremely complicated device. There are many functions available. Just RTFM.

I'm not sure if they did it right, maybe it's genius - that they counted on EFF to make a fuss of it - so they would publicize it much better to end users. But there needs to be something like that, an ability to disable some functionality while not shutting down some other useful stuff. It really needs a new standard for WiFi and BT, but short of that this is better than nothing. And you still have your all-or-nothing switch in settings, so it's a good trade off for me.

The control center Wi-Fi is only to temporarily turns off for occasions with slow store Wi-Fi but not to remove the setup. I find it very convenient whenever the Wi-Fi is too slow like Macdonald and Starbucks. If you want Wi-Fi turned off permanent, use settings.

Well, that defeats the purpose of "Control Centre" in the first place...
Me - October 7, 2017 at 9:14pm
Shoukd have renamed it to "You think you did Centre" or "Maybe nit Centre".
Me - October 7, 2017 at 9:14pm
not

The control center Wi-Fi (and Bluetooth) is only to temporarily turn off for occasions with slow store Wi-Fi but not to disable as in the setup. If you want Wi-Fi turned off permanent, use options in settings.
