After upgrading my iPhone to iOS 11.1.1, the locked screen shows iTunes music prominently covering my lock-screen picture, whereas before this never happened.

I'd like to disable this feature / bug, but I don't see any mechanism for doing so.

Does everyone's iOS 11.1.1 do this, or is it just a bug that randomly hits people?

I would like to see my picture, not iTunes, which I rarely use. I also don't want to accidentally hit "play" and start random noises from my pocket.

    Sounds like a bug to me, although I haven't updated. Have you tried unlocking then relocking the phone, closing Music, or rebooting? – SilverWolf Nov 13 '17 at 16:19
  • Thanks @seaturtle. I rebooted the phone already and saw it was no longer manifesting. I am not sure what caused it to start up, but it was that way ever since upgrading to 11.1.1 last night. – rholmes Nov 13 '17 at 17:12
  • Wonderful. A simple reboot fixes so many wacky things. – SilverWolf Nov 13 '17 at 18:28

Rebooting the iPhone resolved this issue, and it has yet to re-appear.

This appears to be a temporary manifestation of a bug, one which I was unable to find any references to online.
