Apple have recently updated their website, adding a new accessibility category on their accessories store. This new category of accessories include products that have been designed to help those with a range of disabilities use iPhone, iPad, and the Mac in a number of ways from operating functions of their Apple products to learning, playing, and creating music.
At this stage there are 15 accessories available separated into three sub categories including Vision, Physical & Motor Skills and Learning & Literacy products. Some of these accessories are switches, like the AbleNet Blue2 Bluetooth Switch, which offer a mode of access to operate functions on iPhone, iPad, and the Mac. Others like the Skoogmusic Skoog 2.0 make learning, playing or creating music from iPad or Mac possible from an accessible and fun tactile cube.
Last month for Autism Acceptance Month, Apple shared a video called Dillan’s Path, showing how Dillan uses his iPad to communicate with his loved ones. The video shows how the iPad had greatly helped him, and show how Apple have added a large range of features, and innovation to their products to help people with disabilities experience the fun and functions of iOS, Mac OS and more.
