    Can other please confirm if they too are experiencing the bug as described here:

    Essentially, when certain apps are giving notifications to the watch, the notification app artwork is missing from the screen (i.e. You’ll get a Facebook notification on your watch but the actual Facebook icon is blank, or white, instead of showing the actual Facebook artwork, even though the notification comes through fine).

    This seems to only be happening since iOS 11 an Watch OS4.

    Not so far, although I don’t use Facebook but mainly news and weather alerts from third party apps.

    I’ve noticed this happening with Facebook and BBC Sport. I have both these apps installed on my iPhone 8 Plus and Notifications are mirrored to the watch but even though these still come through, the artwork icon for each app is just blank (white).

    I wonder whether this is an iOS 11 bug OR if it’s just a case that Devs haven’t yet updated their apps to be 100% compatible with iOS 11 (hence some apps show artwork and some don’t)?

    You will need to wait for watchOS 4.1 to be released. It’s already fixed in beta 2.
