    Default Volume indicator gone

    So every now and then the volume indicator when I press the volume buttons just disappears. The volume still goes up and down, and the ringer indicator still shows up, but the volume indicator just disappears. When I restart my iPhone 7, it comes back. However the problem comes back after about a week. How can I fix this? Has anyone else had this problem? My software is up to date btw

    Welcome to iMore! If the hard reset doesn't work permanently, you might try Reset All Settings.
    Reset All Settings
    Go to Settings >General >Reset >Reset All Settings. This resets to default everything in Settings, including notifications, alerts, brightness, and clock settings like wake up alarms.

    If that doesn't work, the only thing left to try is a restore as new. Not from a back up.

    Not yet. You can try going to Settings → General → Reset to select "Reset All Settings" to see if that fixes the problem. If not, you might want to consider restoring your device.

    So does this happen when playing videos or something. If so that's by design as to not cover up the viewing area. It's been noted in the early betas.

    I've had this issue occasionally on my iPad mini 2 as well. I find that if I just reboot, the volume indicators return like normal.

    No it happens at times when the indicator should be there, like while playing games. It's only happened twice to me and turning the phone off has fixed the issue both times.
