    Why couldn't they make the Bluetooth similar to the do not disturb or airplane mode where the on off switch is right in settings instead of making you have to click Bluetooth then you can turn it on or off?

    Not trying to be a smart*ss, but why do folks need to turn Bluetooth off?

    I just don't understand. I've run my iPhones with Bluetooth enabled 24/7 for the past 3 generations. My battery life is usually phenomenal.

    Because just because you have only one bluetooth device doesn't mean other people would have only just one. Even wifi isn't a single button, why would bluetooth be one button.

    I own two iPhones. Sometimes I have both with me and have to turn off bluetooth on one because two devices can't connect to my stereo.

    There are people who believe that an open Bluetooth connection allows others to access their phone nilly willy.

    Sometimes I don't want Bluetooth on when I'm driving like if someone else is in the car and I get a call I don't want the call to be over the speakers.

    I would like that option too... hopefully they will add that and wifi into the notification screen at some point.

    That would be great, add wifi to the mix as well.
