Why Does My iPhone Keep Turning On Bluetooth? Here’s The Truth!

iPhone Bluetooth keeps turning on and you’re not sure why. You tapped the Bluetooth icon in Control Center, but it won’t stay off. In this article, I’ll explain why your iPhone keeps turning on Bluetooth and show you how to fix the problem for good!

Why Does My iPhone Keep Turning On Bluetooth?

Your iPhone keeps turning on Bluetooth because you’re trying to turn off Bluetooth from Control Center. If your iPhone is running iOS 11, tapping the Bluetooth button doesn’t actually turn Bluetooth off — it disconnects your iPhone from Bluetooth devices until the following day.

How To Turn Off Bluetooth On Your iPhone

There are two ways to turn off Bluetooth on your iPhone — in the Settings app or by using Siri.

To turn off Bluetooth in the Settings app, tap Bluetooth and turn off the switch next to Bluetooth at the top of the screen. You’ll know Bluetooth is off when the switch is white and positioned to the left.

useless article. I walk past my car and it switches to bluetooth, every f***ing day unless I remember, every day, to make sure it’s off.
