The iMessages app gets apps closer to you in the new iOS11 update

On Tuesday, Microsoft Corp. published a note saying Apple's Mail app in iOS 11 "is not compatible with, Office 365, or Exchange Server 2016 running on Windows Server 2016".

To prevent drivers from looking at their phone, Tech Crunch says Apple has installed a new "do not disturb while driving" feature that "silences all notifications" when on the move.

Apple explained that this was to allow some features such as AirDrop, Instant Hotspot and Locations Services to continue to function.

When you use Control Center to turn off Bluetooth or Wi-Fi in iOS 11, turns out, you're not completely turning off those antennas. So, Apple has added a feature that allows you to automatically share your Wi-Fi password with the tap of one button.

To truly disconnect, users instead need to go to the Settings to disconnect Bluetooth and WiFi completely. While users can fully disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth through the Settings app, those means of connectivity will turn back on under a couple different scenarios.

Hurricane Irma Batters Florida With Wind, Rain And Storm Surges
Irma , which made landfall in the Florida Keys yesterday as a Category 4 hurricane , has now been downgraded to a tropical storm . Irma is expected to drop 2 to 5 inches of rain across SC and northern portions of Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.

Security researcher Collin Mulliner who is an expert in Bluetooth connectivity said, "It is stupid". These unnoticeable bugs can encourage the hackers to penetrate into victim's systems thanks to the Bluetooth being on. It extends battery life and improves cellular connection. In January, Apple reported that 76% of the iOS user base was running iOS 10, which was released on September 13, 2016.

This fault was first noticed by Andrea Barisani where he immediately posted a blog on Twitter saying iOS 11 is misleading iPhone users with the connectivity problems and this is really very unfair. Fortunately, there is still a way to turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth altogether.

Once you're done customizing, open Control Center by swiping up from your screen and you'll see your customizations.

Security experts generally agree that one of the safest methods of preventing hackers from gaining access to devices is to regularly turn the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth features off when not in use.
