So to activate this feature then follow this step. Here are some of them you might not have noticed. Turning off Bluetooth and WiFi is a tricky thing on the new iOS 11 which Control Center doesn't support. With a customizable interface, you can add your own shortcuts to the functions you need easier access to. To do this, head over to Settings Control Center and Customise Controls.

iOS 11 changes the behavior of Notifications and the Lock Screen. Customize Control Center from the Settings app. This feature is helpful in recording the activities that we do on the screen. For people using 16 or 32GB variants, you can backup your photos on the iCloud or use Google Photos. Now, you'll record your screen, as well as the audio from and around your iPhone.

Make most of the iOS 11 with these tips and tricks. The app icons won't disappear from your home screen, but if you try to open the app, the iOS will ask you to download the app again from the App Store.

The phone will detect when you're moving too fast and advise you to turn on the Do Not Disturb While Driving.

It's so hard to type on your phone if you've only got one hand, which in our busy lives happens a lot.

If you've ever wanted to text Siri, now you can, and it can be handy when you can't talk to the assistant.

Analyst Buzz: Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited (TEVA)
The current share price indicates that stock is -4.02% away from its one year high and is moving 133.77% ahead of its 52-week low. The company reported $0.99 EPS for the quarter, missing the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $1.06 by ($0.07).

How irritating is it when somebody asks for the Wifi password in your house, but you didn't take the time to change it to simple one so you're stuck with a random code of upper and lower case letters with a smattering of random numbers. Instead, those buttons simply disconnect your iPhone or iPad from connected devices.

Also, a feature you're hardly going to use is the new Wi-Fi password sharing feature.

To actually disable Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, iPhone users must go into settings and turn both off completely.

Like mentioned above, when you toggle the switch for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi off in your device's control center, they remain somewhat on still.

On iOS 11, pressing the wifi toggle immediately disconnects the iPhone or iPad from any wifi networks, but leaves the wireless radio available for use by location services, scanning for the names of nearby wifi access points.
