    randomly locked notes are refusing to open using Touch ID and then I’m asked for the password however using Touch ID there is no password, a workaround I have found is to open a new note then set it to lock using the share box, I then lock this note, the note will then be unlocked using Touch ID which also unlocks all the locked notes therefore you can open the previously unresponsive note. You then have to toggle the lock off and on to make it responsive again. A real annoyance, have tried all the usual resets etc but problem still reoccurs.
    Is there an answer or is this a bug in iOS 11

    I had the same issue with my phone then after a few days it cleared up but the ipad still demands a password for new notes so there is a bug that needs to be fixed for sure
