    Can someone explain how the new and allegedly improved Control Center is actually an improvement when it comes to ... controlling one's device? It was bad enough when I discovered Control Center no longer controls WiFi or Bluetooth being on or off (old) as opposed to connected or not connected (new), but after popping in my AirPods for the first time after installing 11.1 last night, I no longer see a way to quickly connect my iPhone to the AirPods via Control Center, as was possible in 10.x via Control Center's Music pane. What gives?

    On the music icon. In the top right corner there are two curved lines. Tap that. You can connect to any Airplay device, speakers or headphones.

    Gotta be in it to win it
    I happen to like the disconnecting functionality. Makes it much easier instead of turning off.

    Thanks. (Mea culpa, etc., as regards this issue. Still hate the connected/not connected change.)
