We noted way back in July that toggling Bluetooth and wifi off in the iOS 11 control center doesn’t do quite what you might expect. Rather than disabling the functionality, it merely disconnects from currently-connected devices and cancels the auto-join feature to stop it immediately reconnecting.

We’re all excited to update to Apple’s new iOS 11 for iPhone and iPad after the official public release yesterday, but making sure you have your backups in order beforehand so you don’t lose any data can sometimes be a nerve-racking task. If you happen to encounter a problem with the update– like missing data, iOS update failures or a frozen phone– there might still be a way to recover what you’ve lost and complete your iOS 11 update without issue…

PhoneRescue from iMobie allows you to access deleted and lost data on iOS 11, and even browse through data in your iCloud backups to pull individual files as needed. And with the latest release that brings support for the software on iOS 11 and High Sierra, there is also now a built-in iOS Repair feature that will fix the most common iOS update issues– such as Recovery Mode problems, phones stuck on the Apple logo during reboot, and other iOS update failures– all while preserving your data in the process.

Apple prides itself on its fanatical attention to detail, with many stories of the lengths to which Steve Jobs would go in the pursuit of perfecting even the smallest of UI elements. In one of them, Google’s then VP of engineering Vic Gundotra describes being called by Steve at home on a Sunday.

So Vic, we have an urgent issue, one that I need addressed right away. I’ve already assigned someone from my team to help you, and I hope you can fix this tomorrow. I’ve been looking at the Google logo on the iPhone and I’m not happy with the icon. The second O in Google doesn’t have the right yellow gradient. 

Tim Cook and Jony Ive have both said that this legacy means a great deal to them, and that they aim to maintain this obsession with detail. But one designer thinks Apple has missed quite a few details in iOS 11
