    I don’t think it’s a feature or a bug. I think they just got rid of the indicator.

    With iOS 12 Bluetooth is on by default.

    Apparently Apple felt the need not to show the icon for that.
    You only see an icon where it used to be if Bluetooth is actively used by an accessory.

    I think it really should be shown,as far as I remember Bluetooth eats your battery.

    That’s not entirely true.
    You’ll maybe have 15 minutes less usage time because of Bluetooth and that’s a big if.. Bluetooth nowadays uses very less battery, compared to years ago.

    I’m using Bluetooth too many times to justify disabling it. And I still get 8 hours of usage time with 16 to 20 hours standby.

    I have no need to use it so don’t, I suppose they’ve fixed the visibility aspect as well....

    I have an Watch so turning off Bluetooth is not even an option for me. Also, I use AirDrop too often, so it’s only convenient to have BT enabled.
