    On my iPhone X (256GB, AT&T), it displays the small arrow icon used for active Location Services next to the time, on the right side of the notch. I have not seen this on any of the photos I’ve seen of the iPhone X. When I view the control panel, it also appears there next to other service icons like the battery percent, BT, and orientation lock. When I turn off location service to my apps, it remains, but if I turn off all the system resources that use my location, like Find My iPhone, it will go away. I don’t have a problem with my location being tracked since I have gone though the apps and system rescources that do so, but I would like the icon next to the time to go away. Does anyone have this icon show up on their new X?

    I just tested to make sure and mine will show if I am actively using it (ie Siri for directions) but otherwise is not present for things running in background. I am also on iOS 11.1. Did you try a reset (stupid question likely as most try this first!)
