> 2. As I said focus lands on whole screen on performing any action and I am presuming that at this point focus will not be visible as it didn't focus any item on the screen.. Does this fail focus visible 2.4.7?

In my experience on iOS after entering text an input field with the on-screen keyboard with VoiceOver and then tapping done focus is often placed on a randomish place somewhere close to where the location on the screen where I tapped done but not where you would expect it to return to.

Subject: [WebAIM] Query about focus lost issue in mobile

Hi, Greetings!

I have been testing on mobile apps in both Android and IOS and very frequently I observed whenever I am completing the action the focus seems to be falling on whole screen but not on the expected item. User has to swipe again from the top to continue from where I left previously after performing each action.
Let me eloborate this with a quick example. I have details page with actions like renaming item, adding emoji, adding reminder, adding due date etc. on a screen with dismiss and done buttons as first two items. For instance activating due date will take me to a new screen asking me to set a due date facilitating with a done button to save the due date. Once after saving due date focus comes back to details screen and focus instead of landing on due date button falls on whole screen. Now my concerns are 1. I feel focus should land on due date button but unfortunately not only in the narrated example, whenever I perform a action from a new screen or popup focus always moves to the top of the screen pushing user to swipe from top each time. I am told that's the way how Android and IOS behaves when I raised the concern. So is this really the expected behavior or it's due to focus management issue?
2. As I said focus lands on whole screen on performing any action and I am presuming that at this point focus will not be visible as it didn't focus any item on the screen.. Does this fail focus visible 2.4.7?

Thanks in advance for your inputs.

Thanks,
Venkatesh
