What I Want From iOS in 2019

It took me a long time to warm up to Apple and iOS, as I have explained before. I was a long-time Windows Phone user, which was just natural to me since I had smart phones before the iPhone existed and I supported Exchange Server.

Previous phones:

  • Samsung Blackjack
  • Samsung Blackjack II
  • Samsung Jack
  • HTC Surround
  • HTC Windows 8
  • Nokia Lumia 1520

It was not until after iOS 8.x was released that I ever owned any Apple product, and even then that was in an effort to get familiar with a product for my customers, not because I wanted to use it. I got an iPhone 6 Plus and it mostly sat on my desk while I clung onto my Nokia. One thing really bothered me about iOS and it still does.

When I bring up Control Center and want to deal with my WiFi and/or Bluetooth connections… the only thing I can do is turn them on or off:


I am not sure it was possible in the earlier releases of Windows Mobile, but I am fairly sure that by at least Windows Phone 7, I could connect/disconnect to different networks and pair/unpair devices right from the similar menu (and even turn on/off Internet Sharing):

Apple, please bring this feature to iOS! I eventually warmed up to that iPhone and have lots of Apple gear, including 4 iPhones, 3 iPads, an Apple Watch, and the Airpods. I like your products, but can you help me out here?
