Thanks Johanna - yep, the above were all discussed in the MacForums thread link w/ a bunch of screenshots that I left - typically, when Airplane Mode (AM) is selected in the new Control Center, the symbol turns orange (red?) and the other 3 symbols are dimmed w/ a cross mark, as shown in the first pic below from your link - however, when I hit AM on my iPad, nothing happens w/ the other 3 symbols (see 2nd pic from my device) - now on my wife's devices (11.0.2 also), when AM is activated, then all three other symbols behave correctly, both in the Control Center and in Settings. I've RESET my iPad 3x over several days w/ no effect - believe that it's a software installation 'error' on my device - I'll be on an airplane in a month and will simply go into Settings and turn off BT & Wi-Fi, unless a new update is released that corrects my issue - really not a big problem. Thanks again - Dave ADDENDUM (Oct 8): Well, for some reason, AM will now 'turn off' Wi-Fi & AirDrop (but not BT) in both the Control Center & Settings; so maybe if I wait a few more days, BT too will be affected - scratching my head! .
