Whenever I install or upgrade an app after the install step (but before the app is able to launch) my device freezes for between 30s - and a couple of minutes (worst case). During this, it's unresponsive to home button pushes, swipes, etc. After the time passes, it resumes function as normal.

What I've tried

Rebooting, upgrading iOS to latest -- And perhaps most informing, this issue has followed me through 3 phones (2 iPhone 7, and one iPhone X) -- It seems to be with something that gets backed up, so that when I restore from backup the issue then persists.

Note -- It also freezes after I install apps using xcode development. In this case, the freeze is long enough that X-Code thinks that the build has failed and gives me the message "iPhone has denied the launch request." -- But eventually it launches anyway (after the freeze part)

    Is it an option for you to just wipe your iPhone and set it up again but not restore it from a backup? – fsb Jan 22 '18 at 6:21
  • @fsb ... A real pain, but may be what I resort to. I was hoping to ask here and see if it's a known bug. – BadPirate Jan 22 '18 at 16:28
  • It's not a bug that I know of. I have experienced issues restoring from backups instead of setting-up as a new device, however. That might be your best option. – fsb Jan 22 '18 at 16:36
