The changes to the TLS configuration gave us forward secrecy for all 
enabled ciphers and piece of mind over potential security issues in 
older TLS versions. We neither rushed to it nor fully disregarded 
compatibility. Upstream Apache or at least Debian should have done this, 
in fact.

One can always manually override these values, but perhaps moving on to 
more secure clients is better.

As for replacements, I have been using Mobian on PinePhone for a while 
and I very excited about it. The hardware is pretty decent but the 
software has a lot of catching up to do. An easier option for 
non-technical users is Lineage OS + a well support Android phone model.
