Root problem is the loading indicator is way too overbearing (IMHO you could get dizzy if you stare at it too long) So rather than fix the loading indicator and change it to something more elegant and fitting, a pause button was added.

I agree it's not expected behavior and in the example given which is to expose the Settings option, why not just have the user click on the Settings icon or button? A toggle or switch is to toggle/switch between two binary values so it's not to be used for opening modals because in the example given, it would mean the value is Settings Window Open/Settings ...

If it is not a confirmation pop/up (which you should try to avoid, since users tend to get them out of the way without reading the message within) the answer is no. I have to say that I'm thinking about a switch as toggle. A switch does enable or disable something full stop. I doubt that a user would expect something else using a switch. If it triggers a ...

Every time I've discussed this aspect with fellow Ix designers, we agreed that "...

I believe your idea is correct regarding the use of checkbox when a Submit button is required. Toggle ON/OFF switch do not need a separate Submit button. By 'immediate', as iOS guidelines describe, there should be some sort of visual feedback that the effect is now turned on or off, usually dependent fields are hidden/displayed/activated/deactivated.
