    I think it’s pathetic!! I am using it today in Facebook mostly and on twitter and google and it has made so many changes to everything it’s slower in everything for me. I have wrist and hand disabilities and it is a disaster. In all areas it is double typing words, highlighting to excess , it seems to have a mind of its own. Notifications double transpose themselves on each other and navigation from page to page is painfully slow. In FB when you try to view a post a new sub page pops up and want to open a new window. This is the worst thing that’s happened to a disabled person who was satisfied with her 11. Whatever I had before.

    13.0 update was fine….. 13.1 and 13.1.1 updates disabled the recognition of the headphone connector(it will still charge though) and disabled the microphone on my iPhone7. Hoping that 13.2 fixes this!
