    Why Apple Dev Team make the things super complicated on this New IOS 11, WIFI, Now shutdown the Iphone with 3 steps !
    Well, it’s also working in ONE STEP by pushing the power B & slide to close….

    This new IOS 11 is full of regression !!

      I agree – this feature could be SO MUCH more useful if it was accessible from a shortcut on the Home Screen.

      I help “seniors’ with their iPads and it always surprises me that they think that turning the device off is done by closing the cover. They also charge the device in sleep mode or ful on. When I ask if they put fuel in their car with the engine running the penny seems to drop…

        That depends on the person’s background. My parents are both over 65 but college educated, and they always knew that pressing the sleep/wake button, like the ipad smart cover, only turns off the screen not the whole device. They did have to be told to press and hold the button to completely turn off the device because that procedure isn’t obvious.

    I’d like to know how to disable the constant notifications to upgrade to iOS 11 that I know will be starting on my phone soon!

      Me too. Perhaps jailbraking it would fix this…?

      While there is no way to permanently disable the update notifications, you can stop them for a while by deleting the update file. On ios 10, just go to settings>general>storage & icloud usage. Then look for the update and delete the file. This also works on ios 11, except now it is settings>general>iphone storage (or ipad storage) as the icloud storage manager has now been moved to the account section in settings.

    I have an iPhone 7 plus, with the current OS updates.

    I was just updating several apps. Something in one of them got hung up, and it never stopped ‘verifying’.

    When that happens, you can’t shut down the phone like this article suggests; the swipe action doesn’t do anything. But the power button still worked, so I’m my phone’s servant once again.

    (This is just for your info. I now return to my real life…

    …which isn’t much more interesting.)

    This should be done from the Control Center. Easier and faster.

      Nailed it! Especially since they now tout the CC to be customizable. Still waiting for the day they introduce Basic/Advanced settings.
