Hi, I am wondering if anybody has this issue on their 9.7 inch iPad - when I select the now playing screen in the music app it fills up the entire screen instead of the right third of the screen like it normally did. Then when I go to close it there is an animation glitch that causes it to collapse into the left hand side of the screen then pop into the right side where it belongs. I had this issue in iOS 10 and it's still there in the iOS 11 beta. I have no idea what to do to fix it.

Im having this too on iOS 11.1.2. It just started this week...the fact that its this random makes me think maybe its a server side issue?? Why would it happen randomly in iOS 10 and 11?

I was able to fix it by going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. You'll have to put your wifi password in again and a few other things but it fixed the Music App for some reason.

I don't understand what the issue is. Which right third? This is my behavior on iOS 9.3.4:

Which is not 10, or 11 that this thread is talking about.
The behavior in 10 and 11 is that the now playing screen is a smaller, 1/3 screen size panel that pops up when music is playing. There is not a fullscreen now playing sheet anymore.
I know right....using a 2 year old OS doesn't contribute anything to the conversation.

FYI I'm on a DM with Apple support on Twitter and have eliminated some things now. They are starting to look into other possibilities.

Couldn't see the 1/3 screen size panel in your screenshot. That's why I asked. Apologies... I won't annoy you anymore by trying to understand the issue.

THIS WORKED!!!!! Not sure how but maybe it just trashes all the system preferences like on a Mac.....bizarre but thank you!!!
