Problems with the native Mail app under iOS 10.2

iOS & iPadOS

Hi all, since upgrading to iOS 10.2, on opening an email, instead of skipping directly to the message text, VoiceOver reads out headers such as the sender's address, date, subject, etc. One has to either swipe several times to the right or place the finger at the centre of the screen and hope to get to the beginning of the message. This worked fine prior to the 10.2 upgrade, and hasn't been fixed in 10.2.1. Also, the preview no longer works. Although my preview is set to five lines, VoiceOver does not read out a single line in the preview mode. Could Applevis please report this to Apple as a VoiceOver bug that needs fixing? Thank you.

VO also seems to have huge performance issues in longer mail conversations... Especially when you're using Braille input.

Using two fingers to clean up the mail can be read directly to the body of the.
On the question of preview, you can use the mail title on the three fingers twice, it can read out the contents of the preview.

To get the preview to work expand the thread. I have no issues with that. As for the reading of headers I simply swipe past all of that. I bugged this, but I think this is a design change. Personally I don't mind it as I think there is somethingn that does read like that when you hover over it.
