    Well when using iOS becomes a hassle as well, I may as well choose the less expensive option. Simple changes have big impacts. Apple can't be bothered about thinking about the impacts of removing features.

    Well, they aren't wrong about Touch ID

    Why do so many people love to continually misconstrue this?

    People were holding the phone wrong, as was shown in tests where if you held any other phone over its antenna, reception would drop precipitously on them as well.

    To be fair, if the antenna was susceptible to that and was at the time positioned in such a way where it was likely to be held in those affected areas, then there's something to be said about the design of it at least being not as good as it could/should have been.

    Ultrabooks without DVD drives, push for Wi-Fi, reversible cables (lightning) and higher PPI resolutions.
    All of those decisions have been mocked by other companies and now Apple is recognised for having made the right decision about them.
    The next one: getting rid of the headphone jack. If you disagree, remember I’d your position in 10 years time.

    My Bluetooth icon is always "On" (bright and not grey'ed out) when I am not connected to any Bluetooth device. This happened after the iOS 11 update.

    I tried turning Bluetooth on/off in the Settings menu, but it still does this. Is this a bug or a new "feature"?

    It makes the iPhone useless in busy cities.

    Everytime you are playing on 4G, and you walk past a wifi connection you've once used, like a cafe, public hot spot you or a restaurant/ bar, then your internet will cut out and be overriden by Wifi. It would be okay (although pointless) if these connections were secure and connected instantly for the small number of seconds you walked past, however they are all open wifi connections with additional verification. Anything running on 4G will instantly cut out, every minute or so.

    So, rather than swiping up and turning off wifi (which is funnily enough, exactly what I want to do when I press the Wifi off button), I have to close my app and go into settings.

    What a stupid, poorly thought through concept. There is absolutely no reason at the very least not to add an additional force touch option to fully turn off wifi, or to restrict the auto-connect option to secure wifi connections.

    Please, “useless?”

    It’s one extra action: Home/Swipe for Control Center/tap WiFi becomes Home/Settings/WiFi/Slide off.

    Then add there was no previous way to just disconnect if you walked into an area with public WiFi that was slow or didn’t work; you had to shut it off and remember to turn it back on later.

    Bug or feature, that’s the way the icon works now, unfortunately and given we are now up to iOS 11.1.1, is likely to be the way it remains.
