iOS 7.0.6 and iPhone 5s: poor reporting of auto focus

iOS and iPadOS
Hi, in the camera app I noted that VO is not as reliable as it used to be in terms of reporting auto-focussing of objects. In addition, the bug of not reporting faces in the picture anymore - which several people confirmed - is still present. Does any one else experience this too? /Roland

Hi Roland, Is the unreliability of auto-focus reporting new with iOS 7.0.6? Unfortunately, as iOS 7.0.6 was a security update only, we do not believe it to contain any VoiceOver fixes.

Hi, the problem was there before, at least since 7.0.4. I can not recall exactly but I do know that it was not present in iOS 6 on my iPhone 4, that's for sure. I think it was better before 7.0.4 though /Roland

Hi guys on this Thread. This problem it's not new it been presented since iOS7.01 for most of the iPhone 5S, I couldn't say all because voiceOver users of iPhone 5S has mention on this forum that they don't have seen those issues. Personally I do have an iPhone 5S and doesn't work for me all it, since came out iOS7.01
