Thanks for the interesting insights about iOS’s capability of learning about the user’s input behavior. Could you point me to the resource where you found that?
I wouldn’t say it’s not a technically viable solution.
I specifically wrote:

So that means that a tap within this 100ms is already an edge case. It wouldn’t compromise the overall reaction speed because it only happens when it actually just updated.
Also note that in terms of time perception and responsiveness of an interface, 100 ms actually feels instantaneous from a psychological point of view.
