As you may already know, when you turn off WiFi or Bluetooth from Control Center, It doesn’t mean you’re actually deactivating them. In fact, since some versions of iOS this action simply disconnects these connections, but they will still remain active and available for future connections.
Apple designed this feature so that you can continue to use certain accessories or features, such as specific devices or services that allow you to share files and other media content between Apple devices.
But not everyone actually needs it, or more simply you don’t always want to let Bluetooth and WiFi continue to emit their signal when you don’t expect to have to connect anything through these two wireless modes.
The traditional method
Until now, to turn them off it was necessary to open the app Settingsgo to the panel Wifi/Bluetooth and turn off the relevant one switch: only in this way can the function be completely deactivated. Alternativelyif there is the possibility of giving up the cellular network, activating Airplane mode all connections are completely deactivated, including WiFi and Bluetooth.
With iOS 17 luckily Apple has added another shortcut which allows you to deactivate settings such as WiFi and Bluetooth on the fly, without having to look for the respective switches in the menu.
How to do
This new shortcut is found in the search menu which can be accessed by swiping your finger downwards: at that point all you have to do is type Wifi, Bluetooth or Airplane to see the relevant switch appear at the top: from here you can change the state, turning them on if they are off or turning them off if they are on, with a single click.
