UPDATE: It stopped happening after the latest OS (and launcher) update - to Android 8


Why does my SIM Toolkit icon is duplicated tripled?

The second one appeared not so long ago, and it never happened before (I have the phone for more than a year and a half).

There wasn't an OS update when it happened, or something I can think might affect, and there's only place for one SIM in that device.

Note:

  • It happens only in that launcher.
  • Reboot or re-inserting the SIM does not change it.
  • Clearing launcher app cache doesn't help.
  • I don't want to clear the app data, because I'll probably lose the organization of the apps.
  • It appears only once in the app list in the settings.

Device details: LG G5, Android 7.0, stock ROM, no root
Launcher: Home & app drawer (By LG)
