Not that hard is it?
Apple on Friday issued its 12th developer beta version of iOS 12, which should see general release in September, just days after the previous version began spamming beta testers and developers with errant update notifications. Greater control over intrusive notifications is one of the relatively few marquee features in iOS 12 …
" The Register asked Apple for comment. <Crickets>
and tumbleweed... "
One of the best bits of any apple story on el reg is the last line of asking apple for comment... its like the old journalist stalwart, "made my excuses and left" when reporting on anything lest than of good taste for polite company....
Not entirely sure what the OP was referring to, but the comment about [iOS] 10 makes me suspect it's a reference to the
frustrating bug/problem feature where turning Wifi or Bluetooth off from the Control Centre only turns it off temporarily until the next day. To turn it off properly requires a visit to Settings. Before iOS 11, Off meant off even in the Control Centre. Apple claimed this change was to improve the customer experience - ho hum.
So if you want Bluetooth/WiFi off permanently, you do it one way (in Settings, where more permanent things happen). If you want them off temporarily, you do it the other way (in Control Center, where more changeable things happen). I don't really see the problem with having the choice, and it explains exactly what's happening right there beside the setting. .
"...makes me suspect it's a reference to the frustrating bug/problem feature where turning Wifi or Bluetooth off from the Control Centre only turns it off temporarily..."
Yep got that; just wanted to point out that saying it 'can't' be switched off is erroneous.
I fall into the "Stupid, stupid decision" camp on this; although having said that I did have a conversation with Apple support the other day where they told me it was incredible the number of support calls they used to get from people who'd turned off Bluetooth and thought their Apple Pencil was broken, or had turned off Wifi and couldn't work out why AirDrop or AirPrint wasn't working. So making it 'Off' as opposed to OFF might have been a motivator here - to reduce support calls from muppets.
@ Lord Elpuss, "So making it 'Off' as opposed to OFF might have been a motivator here - to reduce support calls from muppets."
I can understand that. I did see one suggestion that they could have used force touch here - tap for "Off", press hard tap for "OFF" but I did see something the other day suggesting Apple will not include force touch in coming handsets so perhaps they knew back then that method was a dead end...
