    Anyone having an issue where you go to any of the sub menus in Settings (like screen time) and the search bar pops up obscuring the topmost item?

    It's bugging the crap out of me. See attached.

    No matter what I do, it always reappears.

    I’m having the exact same issue. I’m trying to delete one of my Bluetooth connections and I can’t because the “Forget this Device” button is underneath the search bar.

    I'm experiencing the same issue. The only solution I've found is to completely close Settings and start it again until it comes back again. Rinse. Repeat. I haven't yet figured out what triggers the bug.

    Can someone please report this bug to Apple?

    I had the same problem and a reboot fixed it.

    I've had the problem a few times. I actually reported the bug in like PB3 or 4.

    The principal search bar in the settings menu gets “frozen” whilst navigating into sub-sections. Resetting and rebooting my iPhone X got rid of the issue but only temporarily.
    It hinders access to top two options in every sub-menu, but the most annoying impact is on accessibility towards the new screen time feature. #applefixos12
