Since Apple released their iOS 11 there has been a bug in the OS that stops you easily accessing the new Cover Sheet screen when in reachability mode.
Apple has now confirmed to a MacRumors reader that the company is in the process of working on a fix for this issue.
MacRumors reader Michael sent the following email to Appple’s Craig Federighi about the issue.
Ever since iOS 11 was released as a beta, the ability to invoke the Notification Center from the middle of the screen during reachability was removed. This was an incredibly useful feature as one didn’t have to awkwardly try to take ones’ thumb all the way back to the top even though reachability was invoked—defeating the whole purpose of it for one crucial task.
If this was done by design I fail to see the purpose or any benefit whatsoever to its removal. If it’s a bug, I hope Apple can get around to finally fixing this mistake/oversight.
He then received a reply which said that ‘We are fixing it. As yet there are no details on when the fix will be released, as soon as we get some more details we will let you guys know.
