Apple is leading the way with accessibility features on its products including iPhone and iPad, that are designed to make the devices still usable for people with vision, hearing, mobility and cognitive disabilities.
One in five Australians have a disability – that’s more than 4.4 million people.
And Australians are also aging into disability with 16 per cent of the population aged over 65.
According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, at age 65, Australians can expect to live, on average, over half of their remaining years with some level of disability.
With that in mind, it’s a good time to highlight some of many accessibility features Apple has created to give anybody with a disability to enjoy the features of their iPhone and iPad in their day to day usage and be equally empowered by the product as any able-bodied customer.
Many of the accessibility features can be used by anyone with many providing a handy shortcut or a convenient new way to use the product.
