For about the third time since I’ve had my iPhone X, I’ve seen this strange artifact appear on my phone after taking it out of my pocket - something must have accidentally triggered it to happen while moving around in my pocket and the only way I can get ride of it is to restart my phone.

Any idea what it is and how can I remove it without restarting my phone?

You are going to have to give us a screen shot or something as we have no idea what you are talking about!

That’s strange. I uploaded the screenshot and selected medium size and I can see it. Anyway, I’ve edited my post and uploaded it again and selected small size this time.
Its not showing. If you look at your original post, it’s showing a small image with an X going across it. It did not upload properly.
