Updates to accessibility could point to a larger update for iOS 16 and watchOS 9

Apple released a slew of accessibility improvements for iPhone and Apple Watch users earlier this week.

Along with the addition of live captioning to FaceTime chats and other apps, Apple also announced a door detection function that uses the LiDAR camera featured in the iPad Pro, iPhone 12 Pro

Other accessibility enhancements were seen last year, with pictures showing a new layout that hadn’t arrived on iPhone models at the time, but was confirmed a few weeks later at WWDC 2021

Developers and businesses should keep accessibility at the forefront of their thinking. It’s something I look for in new apps and impending updates
