The iPhone 8 launch in London was... muted

The former sends the emergency services a text message with you location, the site says, while the latter gives rescuers vital information about your health. And the same goes for Bluetooth. The Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity actually doesn't turn off even if it indicates that the power is off.

Why? So that users can still use features such as AirDrop, AirPlay, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch and Instant Hotspot.

Apple is yet to confirm what exactly the technical issue was or when the next patch or update will be rolled out. You can do a lot more with your iPhone after jailbreaking it which you normally cannot do, for example, you can have custom themes, you can download paid applications for free, you can easily customize the control center, etc.

Apple believes the best iOS experience happens when Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are enabled on your devices. According to official documentation, users who turn off the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth features of an iOS 11 device will only disconnect the iPhone or iPad from connections using them.

But security researchers warn that users might not realize this and, as a outcome, could leave Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on without noticing.

While these two features could not be turned off from the iOS 11 Control Center, iPhone users still have the option of doing it manually by digging through the settings, which may get tedious for some.

Flappy Bird is just one of many 32-bit iPhone games that users who update to iOS 11 won't be able to play anymore.

If you head out to an Apple Store to pickup any of the company's newest products, let us know what you see down in the comments. Instead, users will have to open their Settings app and toggle the features off individually. But the good people at Apple have realised that we need our second hand to drink our coffee.

Dangerous? You bet. Some folks out there do, in fact, shut off Wifi and Bluetooth on their smartphones from time to time to minimize their risk of being attacked.
