Apple now warns users that turning off Wi-Fi won't always turn off Wi-Fi. Screenshot: Axios.

With iOS 11, Apple made an unusual decision in how Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will toggle in its control center.

How it works: Turning off Wi-Fi or Bluetooth there doesn't actually turn off those radios, but instead just disconnects from the current and other nearby networks.That allows Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to remain available for a number of other uses, including AirDrop and AirPlay.

Yes, but: It also runs counter to what many people expect the button to do. So, with the latest update to iOS 11, Apple decided to make things a bit more clear. The button still works the same way, but when you press it, Apple pops up a dialog box (see above) explaining that the "off" button isn't really off.

Quick take: If you really want to turn off Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, you have to go to the settings menu.

Expect President Trump to redouble his efforts loosening regulations and questioning climate-change science should he win reelection next month.

Driving the news: A second Trump administration would supercharge efforts by certain states, countries and companies to address global warming. But some wildcards could have a greener tinge.

The swing states where the pandemic is raging

Several states that are likely to decide which party controls Washington next year have exceptionally large coronavirus outbreaks or are seeing cases spike.

Why it matters: Most voters have already made up their minds. But for those few holdouts, the state of the pandemic could ultimately help them make a decision as they head to the polls — and that's not likely to help President Trump.
