Turn Bluetooth OFF/ON: Let’s start with a simple trick that requires turning the Bluetooth toggle device OFF and then ON again on your iOS device.

Reset Network Settings: If disabling and re-enabling Bluetooth failed to make it work, next step is to reset network settings of your iOS 11 device. This will take network settings back to factory default status, meaning you have to enter network password again to connect to it. But it fixes the issue as well, so a bit more effort is worth it in the end. For that, go to General > Reset > Reset Network Settings on your iOS 11 device.
Reset All Device Settings: If resetting of networks doesn’t work, the next thing you should do is to reset entire device settings.
