[BCAB] Problems With Tesco App With IOS 13

This now makes no sense to me either.  After updating to iOS 13.1.3 on Sunday, choosing "Browse all groceries" and flicking through the various categories just gave a bunch of unlabelled buttons.
This morning I received an update for the Grocery app and now those buttons are announced correctly.  However, I've just checked the version number and it is showing as 11.6.1, released 6 days ago.

Also, after the iOS update, the Back button at the top left wasn't being announced correctly either.  Since the Grocery update today the Back button is announced correctly again.

Sorry if that is no help.

This doesn't make sense. This is the version I have and the descriptions of the categories are all showing. There is no update after this one.

Hi Ian,

This update hasn't reached me yet.  I've just looked in the app store and the latest is still 11.6.1, released six days ago, which is the version with the problem.  I'll check again tomorrow in the hope that the update will have arrived by then.

It's good to know that they've resolved the problem though.

Hi Caroline,

I received an update for the Tesco app this morning and the buttons for various departments are now spoken by VoiceOver again.

I sometimes use the Tesco app on my iPhone SE.  Under IOS 12 it worked very well, but now I've unfortunately upgraded to IOS 13.1.3, I'm experiencing a major problem.  On the home screen, if I select Browse All Groceries, I would expect to be able to move through various categories, such as frozen food, household, etc, but all I'm presented with now is a screen full of unlabelled buttons.

I've checked with someone else, also using an iPhone SE, who is still running IOS 12 and who is on the same version of the Tesco app as me (released a couple of days ago) and they do not have this problem.

Does anyone have any suggestions about what we can do?  I have sent a message to Tesco through the app, but I wonder whether anyone knows of a way to target the people who need to be aware of this more directly.  In all other respects, such as moving through favourites, the app still seems to work well, but it's just browsing which has now become a bit of a lottery as it's not possible to know which section you've landed on until you double-click on it, only to find that the name of the section then appears at the top of the screen, but all the sub-sections underneath it are unlabelled buttons again.
