    I’m in a queue to part with £1200 for their next piece of kit and I’m continually faced with **** like this

    I feel your pain, I get notifications for some of most pointless Tweets as well. Hopefully with "machine learning" it will figure out I don't care where someone slept, or what someone ate.

    On a serious note, do you have ANY accessibility settings on? Larger text, bold, etc etc? I'm not saying you shouldn't be allowed to do that or that lessens its problem but I haven't had that issue and if I can replicate it I'll send a bug report.

    And as usual, here you come to tell everyone that all software has bugs (as if anyone reasonable expects a 100% bug free OS with millions of lines of code) and they’re no worse than prior versions (“do you’ve all even remember when iOS 7 came out?!”). This post was not helpful.

    Forget the fact that tons of people have this exact notification bug, or that an essentially unusable calculator made it through a dozen betas and two retail releases before getting fixed, or that old notifications re-appear, or that a piece of software used by tens of millions of people was released that couldn’t correctly type the letter “I”, and on and on and on. Quality control standards and design standards have declined, at least in the software side. These aren’t strange use cases. These are situations where engineers and executives are rushing out products with obvious bugs.

    I have been on this forum longer than most and I can tell you a couple of things from experience. There has never been this volume of backlash to an iOS release quality-wise, I have never encountered more bugs than I have in iOS 11 (I have owned every iPhone except the X and 5C), and I’ve never encountered anyone who spent so many hours and posts endlessly defending Apple and delegitimizing people’s negative experiences.

    I like what you have posted here but no matter how you spin it, software written by human WILL contain bugs. This is inevitable.

    And sure, calculator bugs, input bugs, all of them, marginally slipped through so many betas so many engineers so many users and still present until last iOS 11.1.1 or iOS 11.2 beta. This may reflects declining quality control. But Apple is gradually transitioning to a streamlined development, especially software. I bet not too many people like it, and I do not like it either. iPhone X is so rushed that so many things remain incompleted. But still, that weird notification could be a software glitch. Therefore, What CDM said is not wrong.

    This bug has been widely reported since iOS 11 beta and has been fed back directly to Apple. It effects the device each and every time you look at it, never mind use it.

    Just surprised to see it survived yet another update. I don't even know if it has been acknowledged or addressed in 11.2 Beta.
