    I've been noticing that the now playing/Apple Music widget notification thing is popping up on my notification and lock screen.
    If I force quit Apple Music is goes away and generally comes back again.
    Anyone know why this happens? Fix?

    This was an issue during the betas and obviously wasn’t fixed properly. I also experience a disappearing music widget on the lock screen, when music is being played.

    I am not even using Apple Music and right now I have an Apple Music ”widget” stuck on my lock screen. Maybe some app using audio triggereg it, I have no idea.

    ...launching and force quitting Apple Music removed the widget.

    On my iPhone, the audio control widget sometimes loses track what I am listening to, even mixing the apps. It might show that I am listening to a podcast using Overcast, but I am actually listening to music using Spotify..

    Yep, this is exactly what’s happening to me. Hopefully 11.1.0 fixes this.

    Thanks! This works, and it’s better than other suggestions I have read to reboot the device.
