A date-related bug in iOS 11.1.2 is reportedly causing iPhones and iPads to crash or respring unexpectedly when time-based local notifications are received after 12:15 a.m. on December 2.
As per reports, the issue appears to be related to local notifications received from apps that provide daily or repeat reminders. If your iOS device is plagued with this annoying bug, give these tested solutions a try which have worked for many users.
How to Fix iPhone Restarting Issue on iOS 11.1.2
Solution #1: Update your iPhone to iOS 11.2
The first solution you can try to fix the date bug is to update your device to iOS 11.2. Simply open Settings app → General → Software Update and install the latest iOS version.
One thing worth noting is that download will continue even if your device restarts. Hence, let your device be updated peacefully.
Solution #2: Turn off notifications from apps
Just in case you are unable to update, turn off notifications for all the apps on your device and then update your device to iOS 11.2.
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your device → Tap on Notifications.
Step #2. Next, you need to turn off Allow Notifications for each app that sends local notifications.
Now, reboot your device.
Solution #3: Change The Date
If the problem still continues, rewind the clock. Try setting a date for a couple of days before December 2nd.
It's not an ideal solution because apps and services that need to check the time constant will stop working. If you are ready to bear with such aftereffects, change the date.
Step #1. Open Settings app → Tap on General.
Step #2. Tap on Date & Time → Turn off Set Automatically switch.
Step #3. Then, manually set the date and time.
Solution #4: Delete Daily Reminder Apps
As mentioned above, the apps that send local notifications cause the iOS device to crash. Hence, delete the apps that send a daily reminder. If you don't want to lose its data, make sure to back them up before deleting them.
Solution #5. Disable Background App Refresh
Some users have reported that turning off background app refresh has resolved the issue. So, give it a try as well.
Step #1. Open Settings app → General.
Step #2. Tap on Background App Refresh → Tap on Background App Refresh again.
Step #3. Finally, turn it off.
Solution #6: Reset All Settings
Hasn't got the fix as yet? It's time to take a hard decision and reset your device to factory settings. Launch Settings → General → Reset → Reset All Settings.
Hope this helps.
