    Anyone see and know what those tiny sliders mean on the iPhone X unlock screen in the upper right just below the signal strength, WiFi Signal, and battery strength?

    You can swipe left and right to see other "indicators" that couldn't fit on that first "page"

    As soon as I can get it to show again and take a snapshot, I will post.

    I searched this tech document and the icons are not listed. https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT207354

    I also saw them while setting up the phone but haven’t seen them again. Maybe it is to show you where notification center is. It looks like that logo.

    If you stare at the lock screen for too long they show up. They are just a reminder that you can pull down from that spot to get the control panel.

    I’m more interested in what the Nintendo Switch symbol under your wi-Fi signal is.

    Are those just showing or did you tap on it? Can't make that appear on mine but closest I can figure is it's telling you what radios are on and which are off.

    Lol. It does look kinda look like a switch symbol.

    I didn't have to do anything to make them appear. They just pop up whenever I linger on the lock screen. For those who don't see them, did you upgrade your iOS to the latest (11.1, I think)?

    Seems like just an indicator that there's a pull down function available there for control center (that's the control center icon basically).

    Perhaps something that comes up initially to prompt the users and then disappears after the user uses it or when a bit of time passes?

    I get them every once in a while on the lock screen, but I don’t know what they are either.

    11.1 here

    Seems like they are simply indicators that there are swipe options present in those areas.
