Apple has just dropped the iOS 11.2 beta 3 to registered developers. This is a small update and it doesn’t have many visual changes and features apart from a new Control Center indicator on the Lock screen.
So in the iOS 11.2 beta 3, whenever you’re on the Lock screen, there will be a small bar underneath the icons on the right side of the device (mobile signal, wifi, and battery). The bar is not displayed on the Home screen of an unlocked iPhone X or within apps. See the screenshot below:
With the new iOS 11.2 beta 3, Apple has also added new informational pop-ups to let users know exactly how these toggles work. The new pop-ups explain that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi will be disabled temporarily rather than permanently.
The popup says the following for the Wifi: “Disconnecting Nearby Wi-Fi Until Tomorrow. The current Wi-Fi network and others nearby will be disconnected until tomorrow. Wi-Fi will continue to be available for AirDrop, Personal Hotspot, and location accuracy.”
And Bluetooth: “Disconnecting Bluetooth Accessories Until Tomorrow. Currently Connected accessories will be disconnected and other accessories will not connect. Bluetooth will continue to be available for Apple Watch, Apple Pencil, Personal Hotspot, and Handoff.”
What do you think about these iOS 11.2 beta 3 changes? I personally think that this pop-up thing is a bit unnecessary and it should just turn the services off until needed again. Comment below your views on this.
