    Does anyone else have an issue after updating to iOS 11 where there are a bunch of audio issues? Specifically here is what I am experiencing:

    1) volume controls don’t work

    2) can’t control or display music that is playing from the lockscreen/ control Center

    3) the phone mutes when I answer call and I also can’t hear anything

    I’ve tried resetting and restoring and nothing seems to be fixing it. When I restart everything is fine for a little bit but these issues come up again.

    Yep lost all audio controls on my 7+. Probably the most annoying problem aside from the freezing/crashing. Lots of CarPlay problems are well. Been listening to a lot less music since the update.

    Yep. I experienced 2 and 3 on your list. It's been okay for the past two or three days, so I'm hoping it has somehow fixed itself.

    Back to experiencing 2. I was hoping today's update would fix it, but nope.

    I've had the volume control problem too - I'm surprised it hasn't been more widely reported. I've noticed that it seems to happen after an app crashes (multiple different apps have crashed on me, even the "Settings"). During/after the crash, the phone (I have a 7plus) will freeze. Once control of the phone returns, the volume buttons will appear not to work anymore.

    I say "appear" because if I flip the mute switch on/off, it shows the current volume level, and it does seem to be changing with pressing the volume control buttons.

    Annoying because then I get paranoid that I'm not going to get sound at all (I use my phone as my alarm clock) and end up restarting my phone which seems to restore normal button functionality.

    I did a DFU reset/restore last night and things seem to be better now, although I did have the same problem once immediately after the restore, but not since then.
