In all of the excitement of Dark Mode on iOS and the removal of iTunes on the Mac, you’d be forgiven for missing one of Apple’s biggest cross-platform updates to date. At WWDC, the firm announced plans to introduce a slew of new features for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS, designed to make lives easier, and Apple products accessible to everyone. This week, we delve deeper into the changes, exploring how the technology will impact users of all abilities.
More accessible than ever
Apple has always been one to fly the flag for accessibility, telling the world that “technology is most powerful when it empowers everyone.” It’s a trademark for the Cupertino firm’s commitment to building products that work for every human being, not just the able-bodied, and over the years, that mindset has allowed Apple to introduce truly innovative features that have changed the way people communicate, work, and play. Whether taking a selfie with family, catching up with friends on FaceTime or raising the blinds on a morning, Apple has made it easy for everyone to use its software and hardware to live better, more fulfilled lives.
