XT-3 Auto ISO setting stuck on 12800

I recently set my camera to Auto in settings and set up AUTO ISO as well in the settings. Auto ISO 1, default sensitivity to 160, max sensitivity to 12800 and min shutter speed to 1/60. Dial on top of camera is set to A. I shoot in Aperture Priority mode and use back button focusing.  Every time I look through viewfinder, and move my camera around a scene, the ISO remains on the 12800 number and does not change at all. I cannot figure out why this is happening or maybe if I should check some other settings in the camera. Not sure if back button focusing is causing the issue? Would greatly appreciate any thoughts or suggestions on how I can get the Auto ISO to work. Many thanks in advance.

Replying to my own topic as I think I may have figured it out. It's a little annoying - the max sensitivity always shows 12800 when looking through my viewfinder and if I half press the shutter button, the actual ISO reading shows up.

That helps you know which of your auto settings (1 — 3) you are using, since you can set the iso, ss etc. differently for each one.

Keep in mind that if you want to see what the settings were for a shot without moving that image to a computer, push the playback button and then cycle through the DISP BACK button pushes. Those screens tells you all the settings you had in place for that image.
