    iPhone 6s+ iOS 11.2 loaded OTA this morning. Noticed when switching on Airplane mode, WiFi stays on. I know someone with ip8 and it works as normal. Anyone else having this issue?..

    Airplane mode works fine on my 6s. Turned it on and WiFi was disconnected.

    You sure it is off? The WiFi icon is still blue?

    Funny thing is, previous Bluetooth thing with staying on after you turn on Airplane mode, is resolved. It actually turns it off and not just disconnect...something is really weird here...

    Quite strange. Maybe try a fresh install?
    Yeah... that’s what I’m working towards.. I’ve been using iPhone since 3GS...also was registered dev till they started doing public beta.. so I do know what I’m doing.. tried hard reset and reset network settings..no effect. Doing reset all settings, then all co tent/settings, then reload from scratch in iTunes...

    Stupid thing is I’ve got an app that was pulled from App Store so if I restore I lose it cuz they also pulled the ability to put apps on phone from iTunes... stupid

    I just checked my iPhone 6S Plus and it does the same thing yours did. I turn on airplane mode, Bluetooth shuts off but wifi stays connected.

    Maybe Apple designed this update that way?

    Honestly, on a rare occasion of I have to go into airplane mode I want wifi on, so essentially this works for me, whether it was on purpose or not.

    Well this is kinda good news...at least I’m not the only one.. I think this proves it’s model specific.. ip8, 6s, works fine-6s+ doesn’t.. and I don’t think that’s by design..

    Right.

    Yeah I hear what you mean (not by design) but it doesn't get my ocd going enough to go thru a reset or full restore to try to correct it and find it didn't lol. So I'll just ride it out.

    Fixed it! Have to credit my brother for this one.. Go into Control Center and switch Airplane mode on. Then manually turn off WiFi, then toggle Airplane mode back off, then on, then off..should correct it!
