    Ever since I updated my iOS to 11 from 10, the spinning wheel has been on...the WHOLE TIME! I've done a hard reset, I've shut down apps, I've toggled Airplane Mode off then back on. Does anyone know why this is happening, and what I can do to stop it? It drains my battery, but more than anything, I'm very curious as to WHY it's happening. Thanks!

    I have Verizon, so it's in the top left corner of the screen, next to where my data connection shows.

    When did you update and did you restore from an iCloud backup?

    I updated on 9/19, when the iOS was released. I didn't need to restore, because before I updated the iOS, I backed up my iPhone 7 to my laptop, in case anything went wrong with the iOS update.

    Hmm. Sounds like this might be a carrier issue for some reason since these other posters have chimed in with very similar stories.

    After calling Verizon, they had me reset my network settings, and it’s been perfect since!

    Thank you, @lebmob! I noticed it yesterday or the day before and it's been bugging me too. The reset network settings fixed it for me as well. I'm on AT&T with a 7+ myself.

    well after resetting network settings it still did it later on in the day, here is hoping 11.0.1 fixed the issue

    I noticed the same issue yesterday morning and I was on WiFi and also use Verizon. I hard rebooted and the issue went away.

    Another Verizon user here, with the same issue. A reboot of the phone made it go away this morning, but I'd like to figure out what causes it to begin with.

    Reset network settings did not work nor did the lasted 11.0.1 update, and issue is not only with VzN as I have Tmobile

    restart clears it up but it comes back

    I’m in the same boat. Verizon iPhone 7 Plus. Restarting and hard reset are only temporary. Has anyone noticed any battery drain because of this?

    I haven’t noticed any battery hogging apps as of yet

    I activated Siri and it went away. Not in any way saying that’ll fix it for everyone, just pointing out that this bug makes no sense.

    I have Sprint and have had the spinning wheel ever since the iOS 11 update too. It's killing my battery.

    Isn't that just showing that an app is using Background App Refresh?

    Also, in my experience that circle has been the phone downloading music for offline use from my iCloud Music Library / Apple Music

    its using data (or is supposed to mean that). Some phones are displaying a bug that makes it constant and wont go away until you reboot your phone.
