Screen Curtain Inter-fares with Focus

iOS and iPadOS

I've been noticing that Focus mode does not behave consistently when screen curtain is on. I have set Do not Disturb to run automatically for an App. However, when screen curtain is turned on, it does not turn on automatically as expected. No issue while getting the focus turned on when the screen curtain is off. Weird bug.

I just spent some time trying to reproduce this behavior on my iPhone 12, but focus and screen curtain *appeared* to behave as expected.

Does this issue occur all of the time for you, or only in specific circumstances?

1. Turn on screen curtain.
2. Lock the screen and unlock it, then open any app with focus set up. I have tried it with, say, Kindle app with Personal focus set up.

So basically, the issue bugs to those of us who want to keep screen curtain always on. just turning it on temporarily without locking the screen and opening the app with focus set up does not reproduce the issue.

On Se 2nd with IOS15.2.1, but the issue was there in earlier builts as well, since IOS 15, of course.

I notice that if you use focus when screen is lock it turn it self off. Bug or not? If not, what is the point. I like it in Prime Video, Apple TV is nice but for audible, music, and bard mobile when screen locks does not work.
