    Has anyone noticed that after a device wipe in iOS 11 Beta 3, the stock apps have a small iCloud-style icon next to them. They then won't launch when when tapped on. Instead, they seem to update themselves. Only after this can you launch the app.

    See the attached screen grab. The News, FaceTime and Videos apps have the icon next to them.

    It's because the apps aren't installed. Once you try to launch it, it will install the app and the cloud icon goes away.

    They are stock apps. Why aren't they installed?

    This is causing issues with MDM managed devices as we hide stock apps but they don't hide until they have downloaded now in beta 3. This means the user sees all these extra apps that they aren't allowed.

    Could this just be a beta thing that will be resolved for the pubic release?

    I have no idea, it could just be a decision to put more awareness to the apps but not waste space installing it until the user actually wants to use it. It could change since we are still in beta but I would think they would fix the problem with MDM managed devices before they go gold if they keep it this way. In either case you should report it to them in case they didn't think of this being an issue for MDM manged devices.

    Lets hope so. Already reported it as a bug so we'll see what they come back with.
