    A new bug has shown up for me this week. The music player in Control Center will show “no file playing” even when a file is playing, so all playback controls are disabled. This occurs for Music, Downcast, Spotify, StreamToMe - every media app I’ve tried. iOS 11.2.6 is up to date as of today.

    Restarting the phone temporarily fixes it but it now always returns within a few hours. So far I haven’t found the common trigger for this. I haven’t seen any other discussion and am wondering, am I the only one?

    Yep happens to me. Reboot only fix it seems. Seems to mainly happen when playback is initiated by Siri.
