What does it mean “temporarily“?

I guess we'll find out soon but my guess is that it won't try to reconnect to any network until you tap it again (though will remain active/switched on to aid in things like assisted GPS/Location services)

"Tapping the Wi-Fi button in Control Center now disconnects from the current network and temporarily disables Wi-Fi networking"

Wonder how they define temporarily? Same is true for bluetooth

Edit: too slow :D

Of note:
  • The Bluetooth button behavior in Control Center now mirrors that of the Wi-Fi control. (32300000)

Heads up: The UI may lock up during update. Don't try to reboot or anything, it will respring after a few minutes and allow you to proceed with the install.

I would have thought it's the same for bluetooth. "Disconnect from everything, don't try reconnecting but remain available for Watch, Continuity Handoff etc.). It's just a guess but I thought that was what they were trying to do in the previous beta.
