I updated to IOS 11 and now my icons for ARM and DISARM devices are not working.

VeraMate is not very active and it may be a while before he fixes any iOS update issues.  I seem to recall a post saying he was tied up in a big project.

In the meantime, have you tried to uninstall and reinstall the app? It means setting up again, which is a pain.

Another option maybe to delete the icon and add it back in. That has worked for me before.

I noticed tonight a Veramate update to support iOS 11 was published today.  So I updated to iOS 11 and Veramate is still working fine.

I did the IOS 11 update to Veramate and most things are cured but not all.  It's use-able again but I'm going to downgrade back to IOS 10 until the Iphone X is available.

If you post the specifics here, Veramate can address them eventually.

I upgraded today and noticed I now have a permanent blue banner at the top of my iPhone screen warning me that VeraMate is ?actively using? my location. Even though I know this and want it to happen. I submitted a support ticket ?

read here about Veramate using location all the time. It is more an ios11 issue.

Thanks. If the devs can add an option in settings to ?always? poll location info rather than limit to only when using the app, we can choose this option and the blue banner will go away. At least, that?s what happens with google maps.
