Slow, time-sensitive HomeKit notifications in iOS 17

Cupertino, September 22, 2023

I'm curious if it's just me, but I've noticed since installing iOS 17 that HomeKit Time Sensitive notifications aren't as fast as they were in iOS 16. I have an Aqara G4 video doorbell and I've noticed when the doorbell is pressed and it rings the ringer, it may take a while or the notification fails to fully display on the iPhone, when it was instantaneous with iOS 16. I tried the usual tricks of restarting my HomeKit hubs ( Apple TV and HomePods) all running tvOS 17 and HomePod Software 17 along with Aqara G4 reboot. However, I still run into this problem from time to time.
