Status:open Resolved:
Product:XCUITest Product Version:Xcode 13.0
Classification: Reproducible:
iOS 15 typeText with simulators is very slow compared to iOS 14 and 13 executions.
This is an issue with both UIKit and SwiftUI built apps.

The following test below ran against different iOS will demonstrate the issue.

// app
import SwiftUI
struct ContentView: View {
    @State private var text: String = ""

    var body: some View {
        TextField("textfield", text: $text)

// test
func testExample() {
    let app = XCUIApplication()

    let textField = app.textFields.element
