    What do the symbols mean on my iphone X in the top right under LTE while I’m on the lock screen? There is a purple line and symbols above it. Any help would be appreciated. Actually it happens right after Face ID before I swipe up to go home.

    Going by mine, it is your carrier info on left of notch, then cellular signal strength, wi-fi & battery on the right. No purple line, possibly an artifact from picture on lock screen. If you have LTE, then you are using cellular for calls, I am using Wi-Fi. Sorry your picture didn't show up until after I posted.

    It's showing you that you can pull down there to get control center.

    Looks like you have wireless something connected. That's the battery indication for what ever accessory you have connected..

    Are you talking about the control center icon? Top Right?

    That is the symbol for Notification Centre and a pull down indicator. Never seen it on my iPhone X but I did see it in some of the photos and videos from leaked shots in the wild.

    Are you running 11.1 on your phone?

    Agree.
    Agree...It resembles the icon for control centre that you see under 'settings'. I have never seen it either. Looks too busy...I wouldn't like the icon there. I'm on 11.1 too.

    It's not always there. I think it's just a reminder/tip type thing

    Haven't figured out why it is on some screens and not others, nothing in settings, maybe a function of Apple background vs your own?

    There you go, it disappears after you use control center for the first time.
