Like mentioned above, when you toggle the switch for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi off in your device's control center, they remain somewhat on still. It means AirDrop, AirPlay and Location Services will still work even if you tap Bluetooth and Wi-Fi off.
Security experts generally agree that one of the safest methods of preventing hackers from gaining access to devices is to regularly turn the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth features off when not in use.

One of the sneaky features, we missed, like everyone else, was that in the new iOS 11 control center, the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi controls are not doing exactly what we think they do.
However, there are also many bugs that make some of iOS 11's features less usable. The notifications screen follows the rules of the lock screen - swiping brings up the camera, etc. Notifications are easily swiped away instead of having to swipe and tap "Clear".
