Sony keeps Wi-Fi and Internet toggles separate on Android 12


Android 12 has introduced several innovations such as the new graphic interface based on Material You, but also a renewed notification center that also brings with it a new toggle.

This change requires an extra step in managing connections, and this is not liked by many users. Apparently too Sony he thinks like them in fact, with update to Android 12the Japanese company has decided to keep the two toggles separate.

The toggles remain separate on Android 12, but there is a bug

As noted by a Redditor, / uChiron_89who has updated his Sony Xperia to Android 12, this still has separate toggles, unlike what has been done by Google with its Pixels.
