Strange behavior choosing photos when iPad is at slight angle

I frequently use my iPad with the folio case which props it at a slight angle. Interestingly Affinity Photo AND Affinity Designer seem to be reacting to this angle when trying to place photos. The whole interface flickers strangely and taps aren't always registered. The video demonstrates it in Affinity Photo but the behavior is also the same in Designer. 
 

Previous to 2.0 I noticed other features in Affinity Designer such as keyboard visibility that were delicately affected by the slight angle. I haven't determined if these are still issues but I haven't seen any other iPad app that has had issues with this angle. 
 

You'll notice the flickering only occurs while the iPad is at the slight angle, but not when it is upright. This is an 11in iPad Pro M1 running iPadOS 16.2 (a). I have noticed this in previous versions of the OS

If you lift the iPad up as if it was on the magic keyboard then select a brush so the sliders appear, then turn to portrait and then back to landscape you will see the sliders no longer fit on the page, the work around solution is to tilt your iPad slightly towards flat, roughly to the angle you are using with your folio to fix it. Obviously some new features in iPadOS interfering with the apps.

Affinity Suite costs less than a single night on the toon, few beers and curry, just let that sink in.

The interesting thing is that I haven't seen anything close to this behavior in any other iPad app and also have experienced it before ios16 in Affinity Designer and Photo 1. It feels like there's something coded into the Affinity apps specifically though I could be mistaken

Here is a demo of a curves adjustment layer flickering and not previewing changes when the iPad is turned to the slight angle (folio case). In this video I am toggling the angle of the iPad as I try to manipulate the curves. I notice that when it's at the slight angle, the curve changes may preview for a second but will quickly lock up until I close the curve editor, turn the iPad further upright, and then go back.
