Anyone notice this?

When you turn on Mirror iPhone for Airplane Mode ....

I can turn on Airplane Mode from either device ... and one turns on the other one, as advertised - but it doesn’t work when you go to turn it off! ?

What’s the point? It’s like a half-baked feature ?

Granted, it doesn’t say that it will work the same way when turning it off, but still, wouldn’t logic tell you .... ?

I can confirm this on my AW S4 and iPhone XR - both fully updated. With Mirror iPhone engaged, turning on Airplane Mode on either device will turn it on for both devices. Turning Airplane Mode off, however, only turns it off for that device without affecting the other. I wonder if someone at Apple forgot an IF statement somewhere.
