Unable to find elements in iOS version of app

I have a native app developed in C# using Xamarin Forms 4.3 with Appium 1.15.1 running on a Mac OS Mojave (10.14.6)
In the Accessibility Inspector and the Appium Inspector I can’t see any of the elements on the visible page. The Inspectors are “seeing” the elements from a different page as if the focus is on a page behind the visible one.

I tried tapping on the element via:

      TouchAction touchAction = new TouchAction(driver);
      touchAction.Tap(179, 558);

but it’s still hitting the page “behind” the one I see.

Is there a way to correct/compensate for this?

Is this a bug or a problem with the application?


Try the solution from https://github.com/appium/appium/issues/13681

Update to description… This page is part of a carousel. Not sure what this changes. I’m not a developer so I’m not all that familiar with the code behind this other than the most basic stuff.

This isn’t the same as the one described in that nothing I do brings the page into focus.
