iOS 11.2 Suica Notification Bug

Update: Apple released the iOS 11.2.5 Update that fixes the Suica Notification bug on January 23. I recommend the update for all Apple Pay Suica users

Many more Japanese users are tweeting about the iOS 11.2 Apple Pay Suica Notification bug mentioned yesterday and appears to be widespread. Suica “gate flicker”, a momentary bad gate read or complete re-read, is also a problem for iPhone X users.

Here’s what I have found so far.

  • Not Working: Suica Notifications for Transit, Recharge, Transactions
  • Working: User set Suica Reminders for low balance and commuter pass renewal
  • Suica Help Mode, device restart, deleting and re-adding Suica in Wallet does not solve the problem
  • Apple Pay Suica works normally with all transactions correctly logged in Wallet.

I’ll post any updates and workarounds here.
