iOS Question Bluetooth says it's off when it's on?

Hi everyone,
I'm testing my app on an iPhone6+ running iOS11.4.
The iBLE library is reporting the Bluetooth state as POWERED_OFF when it definitely isn't.

In order to get it to register as POWERED_ON, I have to go into Settings and switch Bluetooth off and then on again.
Does anyone know why this might be? It works as expected on my iPad gen 3 with iOS 9.

EDIT: I should add that I am seeing the same thing with Erel's BLE Example project as well if that helps.

EDIT2: HEre's a thread on the Apple dev forum related to this:
