As iPhone was the first of my devices I learned to use, touch was obviously the primary input method. It worked to send short messages and look up something in a browser, but nothing longer than that. I tried Siri, and it works from time to time.

After iOS 14 was released last week, some VoiceOver users and even I noticed that the responsiveness was much slower than usual. It’s a bummer when a new OS release brings more bugs instead of long awaited features to your device.
