Apple has just announced exciting new accessibility features for iPhone and iPad, set to launch later this year, designed to enhance usability for individuals with disabilities. As a premier retailer, we're thrilled to share these innovations with you.

Revolutionary Eye Tracking Technology

Apple introduces Eye Tracking for iPhone and iPad, allowing users with physical disabilities to control their devices using just their eyes. This feature uses the front-facing camera for quick setup and calibration, ensuring all data is processed securely on-device. With Eye Tracking, users can navigate apps and activate elements through Dwell Control, making iPhone and iPad usage more accessible without needing additional hardware.

Feel the Music with Music Haptics

For those who are deaf or hard of hearing, Music Haptics on iPhone offers a new way to experience music. The Taptic Engine translates audio into taps, textures, and refined vibrations, letting users feel the rhythm of their favourite songs. This feature works with millions of songs on Apple Music and is available as an API for developers, broadening accessibility in music apps.

Enhanced Speech Recognition and Vocal Shortcuts

Apple's Vocal Shortcuts allows users to create custom voice commands for Siri to perform tasks effortlessly. Additionally, Listen for Atypical Speech uses on-device machine learning to improve speech recognition for individuals with conditions like cerebral palsy, ALS, or those recovering from a stroke. These features enhance customisation and control, making iPhones and iPads more user-friendly.

Reduce Motion Sickness with Vehicle Motion Cues

Vehicle Motion Cues helps reduce motion sickness for iPhone and iPad users in moving vehicles. By displaying animated dots that represent vehicle motion, this feature reduces sensory conflicts without disrupting the main content on the screen. This ensures a more comfortable experience for passengers using their devices on the go.

Accessibility Enhancements for CarPlay

CarPlay receives significant updates, including:

  • Voice Control: Navigate and control CarPlay apps using voice commands.
  • Colour Filters: Enhance visibility for colourblind users.
  • Sound Recognition: Alerts users to important sounds like car horns and sirens, beneficial for drivers or passengers who are deaf or hard of hearing.

VisionOS: Inclusivity at Its Core

Apple's visionOS will introduce systemwide Live Captions, assisting users who are deaf or hard of hearing by providing captions for spoken dialogue and audio from apps. Additional updates include Reduce Transparency, Smart Invert, and Dim Flashing Lights, catering to users with low vision. These features join an array of existing accessibility options like VoiceOver, Zoom, and Colour Filters.

Additional Accessibility Enhancements

  • VoiceOver: New voices, flexible Voice Rotor, and customisable keyboard shortcuts on Mac.
  • Magnifier: Reader Mode and easy access to Detection Mode.
  • Braille Improvements: Enhanced Braille Screen Input, multi-line braille support, and custom input/output tables.
  • Hover Typing: Displays larger text in preferred fonts and colours while typing.
  • Personal Voice: Now available in Mandarin Chinese, allowing users to create a Personal Voice using shorter phrases.
  • Live Speech: Includes categories and simultaneous compatibility with Live Captions.
  • Virtual Trackpad: Allows control of the device using a small screen region.
  • Switch Control: Recognises finger-tap gestures using iPhone and iPad cameras.
  • Voice Control: Supports customised vocabularies and complex words.
