Good day to you all. I just read the post on Why a person is using Android and why they won't go back to iOS. I also read some interesting comments regarding the hope of all of these major bugs being fixed in iOS 17. This is my hope as well and here's what I did to start the process.
I am deeply enraged about the iOS focus bug. it's getting worse and worse and even going through apple settings is getting impossible on my iPhone SE 3.
So, After writing Apple accessibility twice and submitting screen recordings of the problem demonstrating my issue with apple and non-apple apps, I decided to try writing Tim Cook. Yes, really, it apparently can be done. I did some searching and found where people said they have written to him and sometimes he's answered and other times the message got routed to an appropriate place. Now of course, is this Tim Cook's real address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I had no idea if this was a spoof or correct but I decided to take a chance. What's the worst that could happen? It could bounce back, I could get a nastygram from someone who didn't want to be bothered, any number of things.
I sent an e-mail with my case number provided by apple accessibility and my hopes for iOS 17.
Believe it or not I did get a reply a few days later: not from Mr. Cook but from Apple accessibility. I know this was a reply to the message I sent Mr. Cook because it had the subject line that I used.
So, I am writing to implore you to all who are just fed up with the disaster we are working with and bombard Mr. Cook: email@example.com with all of your requests and bug reports. i have gotten back into the beta program so I can test iOS 17 and send my reports.
Now, will it accomplish anything? Who really knows. But, the more Apple knows about this and if they are sent to Mr. Cook I do believe the messages will be routed appropriately and perhaps attention will finally be brought to these problems. Remember, being kind and polite, explaining things in detail go along way.
So, rather than throwing it all here at apple vis, throw it all at firstname.lastname@example.org
