Ideas on how to get Apple's attention? Petition? Does it attract media attention?

Cupertino, October 8, 2023

I almost had it. iOS 17.0.3 on my iPhone 15 Pro broke a lot of HomeKit: I can't add new home members, location-based automations and camera modes are broken. I am a long time HomeKit user. Most of my friends have HomeKit homes because I pushed them. My parents have one. But the state of HomeKit is getting embarrassing. Is an iterative point update on a brand new iPhone breaking all my houses? (I am a member of the seven.) This is unacceptable. What's up with Apple and HomeKit? Complaints aside, I'm ready to get Apple's attention. What does this look like? A petition? Enough bad press? My simple question is this: Shouldn't the HomeKit framework be bulletproof? Shouldn't it always work? I can forgive the occasional bug, but remember iOS 13? Then iOS 15.2, which broke all location automation for the rest of iOS 15? So the disaster that was the release of the "new HomeKit architecture" in iOS 16.2? How is this acceptable to Apple? I say this as a long time fan. I want them to do better because I like the company. I love their products. But this HomeKit stuff is really testing my patience.
