I've recently started using my BrailleNote Touch plus as a Braille Display for my iPhone. While this setup works really well overall, I have found that when my phone locks, the connection to the braille display is dropped as expected, but the only way to reconnect it is by going into Settings > Accessibility > VoiceOver > Braille and selecting the device. In other words, it does not automatically reconnect once my phone is unlocked again.
I'm using the latest version of iOS 14 and the BrailleNote Touch's OS is also on the latest version. I'm aware that the latest release of iOS 14 introduced a connection issue for certain HumanWare Braille Displays, however I do not believe this is the same issue here as it occurred in previous iOS 14 versions as well for me.
Does anyone know if there is a way to have the BrailleNote automatically reconnect when the phone has been unlocked? Is this a bug, or expected behaviour?
The only solution I can think of so far is to turn auto lock off and only lock my phone manually when I know I won't be using the BrailleNote with it for some time, however this is far from ideal for many obvious reasons, mainly security and battery life related.
Thanks for any help with this.
