    It's difficult for me to believe that this hasn't already been resolved.

    I can't believe this hasn't been fixed. I have the same issues with 2017.2.1p1. The directional light gives weird artifact on flat surface on iphone X iOS metal. I really hope unity can take a look to fix this issue.

    Well, you'd better ignore my last comment as I'm not sure the shader used is not transparent anyway. I may only have tested by putting alpha to 1 which is not the same as switching to opaque shader.

    This seems to also be the case with non transparent objects actually. It's only related to the smoothness parameter.
