VoiceOver focus is erratic in the Find My app

Severity
Moderate

Description

When using the Find My app with VoiceOver, the focus is erratic when trying to use to locate people or devices. Focus will erratically jump around making using the app very difficult if not unusable.

It is likely that this behavior is the result of the app updating the location data for listed people and devices. Accordingly, the more people and devices you have listed in the app, the more erratic will be the behaviour of VoiceOver focus.
