Ending a call on iPhone 6 with VoiceOver activated and more

Forum
iOS and iPadOS

Hi everyone

Sometime I not can ending a call on my iPhone 6 with VoiceOver activated - when I dobbelt tab with two fingers on the screen, nothing happend.

Therefore:
1. What method do you recommend when I will ending a call on iPhone 6 and 6 plus with VoiceOver activated?

2. From my friends I have heard that you could ending a call if you press on the power-button when you have the iPhone to your ear. On iPhone 6 and 6 plus, unfortunately this feature not working at the time I writing.
Is it an error on VoiceOver, if yes, how can I so repport the error to the Apple Accessibility Team? (e.g. via an e-mail-address)?

3. Have Apple a blog where I can read news about new features regarding accessibility etc.?

Thanks for the answer.

Regards
Anders

I think that the problem is that the VO cursor seens not to be focused on anything when a call is in course and this is why the
magic two fingers double tap does not work. Therefore I recomend yoyu try to do this:
Should a call be ended, put the phone away from your face. Make a flicr right to make sure the voiceover cursor is fiocused on a valid element and then perform the magic two finger doubkle tap gesture and see if it works.

Taking phone away from ear is essential due to the proximity sensor. Once the device is away from your ear, double tapping anywhere on the screen will hang up. I was able to do this no problem.

Also, when you end a call with the power button, there is a delay for a couple of seconds then the call ends. I've noticed this on my 5S running 8.1.2. I always use the power button to end a call. However, answering a call with two fingers doesn't work, and hasn't been working for a while on 8.1 and later. I just find the answer button and tap on it.

Is anyone else having trouble getting the sleep/cancel functionality working? I tried it on a call to a beautiful woman, I sounded like a right tool trying to hang up... Could have chosen a better person to experiment on like, well, anyone.

I've got my phone jail broken but can't see why it would make any affect and haven't made any assignments with activator with the sleep button either.

It's actually only from the last couple of days that I found out about the trick.

Sounds interesting. I'm not exactly sure if I mentioned it earlier with the power button, but when you press it to end a call, keep the phone up to your ear, so it's using the earpiece. This always works for me. I haven't had trouble using this method since iOs 5.

Simply taking the device away from head and double tapping does it for me. Not sure where people are going wrong here.
