VoiceOver may become unresponsive after ending a call in the Phone or FaceTime apps

Category

Severity

Description

On occasion, VoiceOver becomes unresponsive after ending a call in both the Phone and Facetime apps; this issue sometimes necessitates that the user must perform a force restart to restart the device.

On occasion it may be possible to return the device to a responsive state by using the Accessibility Shortcut to turn VoiceOver off and back on again. Note that this may take 2-3 attempts.

The presentation of this behavior is inconsistent; some members of our team report experiencing this issue several times per day, while others have not experienced it at all.

OMG, I also got this error.
Horrible when the VO stops talking and you don't know what's going on.

Apple has really fu**ed up this system.
