An Apple user on Reddit, Shaizeik detected a bug that spacing in the Apple Music widget is messed up. He said, “The Apple Music widget does not have enough padding around it and it’s really bothering me!” Another said I’ve noticed when I go back to the previous app from the top left corner after opening an app notification, the animation ends with some flickering effect on my screen’s left edge. I recently took over this phone and was already on iOS 17 so I’m not sure if this issue was there before.”
