New patches bring a bunch of fixes and features, but unfortunately they can also introduce more problems than they fix. A major annoyance for iPhone users as of December 2nd is the phone randomly restarting with seemingly no notice. This has caused a lot of frustration for users who rely on their phones to be available throughout the day. Fortunately, there’s a fix for the iPhone restarting after this most recent patch. We’ve explained a little bit about why this happens as well as steps you can take to avoid this annoying new inconvenience, below.

What Causes The Random iPhone Restarting?

The issue seems to be a bug in the App Store’s local notification API for third-party apps. Basically, this means that if you have a third-party app installed that is set to regularly repeat a notification — such as an app to remind you of your schedule, or to encourage you to get active or track your food — you’ll likely be affected by this issue.

Interestingly, those running the most recent iOS 11.2 beta 6 are now unaffected by the issue. It’s important to note that not every user is affected by this annoying bug, with the majority of affected phones running iOS 11.0-11.1.2.

Apple has yet to address this bug in an official statement, but until they do there are steps you can take to fix the iPhone restarting on your own.

How Do You Fix it?

Right now, the simplest way to fix the iPhone restarting is to go into Settings and then navigate to the Notifications section. Look for any third-party app that may be sending you local notifications, and disable said alerts. Apps from Apple like Reminders won’t be affected by this bug, so you may have to temporarily move your necessary notifications to a first-party program.

Unfortunately, the fix for this bug is less than ideal. The majority of the apps on the App Store are third-party, so having to turn off all of those notifications will really hamper the effectiveness of your favorite Apps.

Until Apple releases an official fix, however, it’s really the best you can do. With the recent rapid software releases, it likely won’t be too long until you can turn those notifications back on. It’s looking likely that we could see iOS 11.2.1 by the end of the year, and with how obnoxious this new problem is, it’s likely we could see the bug patched out pretty soon.
