I have a new iPhone 7 128 gb sim unlocked, a few months old.
While testing the beta for iOS 10.1, I have realized that Voiceover does not read incoming notifications when my phone is locked, even though I have the “always read notifications” setting on.
Back then I thought it was just an iOS beta bug, since this has happened before that the beta introduces a bug that makes vo stop reading notifications when locked, but after it has kept happening throughout the betas and even staid with the 10.1 final, and even 10.1.1, and I heard from other people that they don't have problem with that, I decided to first try to reset the settings back to default, which made vo speak notifications when locked again, but as soon as I set the settings back to how I like them, the problem came back, so I decided to fresh wipe and restore to the fresh 10.1.1. Then, even after I set my settings back to how I like them, the notifications were spoken most of the times, sometimes not.
And now that I have updated to iOS 10.2 public beta, the notifications are barely ever read when locked.
Have any of you had this happen to you and do you have an idea what could be causing this to occur?
I have particularly noticed that if I lock my phone with the blutooth keyboard the chances of it reading the notifications are much better for some reason. If I use the power button to lock my phone it will not read any notifications.
Is there a setting that interferes with the vo reading notifications when locked? Maybe an app that does?
I'd appreciate any help.
I know it isn't too much of a problem, but I'd still like that setting to work how it should and it just bugs me that my phone doesn't behave like the phones of other people.
