Physical & Motor Skills
The revolutionary iPhone delivers a variety of innovative features that make it more accessible to those with impaired physical and motor skills.
Built-in AssistiveTouch lets you enter Multi-Touch gestures using one finger or a stylus (sold separately). It also supports the use of adaptive input devices, like headsets and switches, so you can experience the full capability of iPhone.
iPhone includes several physical buttons: the Sleep/Wake button, located on the top edge; the Ring/Silent switch and volume-control buttons, located on the upper-left edge of iPhone; and the Home button, centered below the display.
Intelligent Keyboard with Predictive Text Entry
Appearing only when you need it and displaying a keyboard appropriate to the task you’re performing, the intelligent QWERTY keyboard on iPhone includes advanced technologies to correct and prevent misspelled words. iPhone learns as you type, so your speed increases almost immediately.
Two Ways to Place a Call
You can make a call on iPhone by either tapping a contact’s name (which you can have displayed in a large font) or entering the caller’s number on the full-screen keypad.
Support for Voice Dialing
If you prefer, you can use your voice to make a call. Just speak the name or telephone number of the person you want to call and iPhone starts dialing. Learn more
iPhone Stereo Headset
iPhone comes with a stereo headset with a high-performance microphone “capsule” built into the cable. Plugging into the standard 3.5-mm stereo headphone jack, the headset lets you control music playback and answer and end calls using the microphone capsule as a clicker. (You can also purchase a hearing aid-compatible induction ear loop for iPhone.)
Downloadable, Assignable Ringtones
You can assign distinctive ringtones to individuals in your contacts list, using the ringtone as an audible caller ID.
Enjoy hands-free communication using the built-in speakerphone, which you can also use to listen to Visual Voicemail, music, podcasts, and video.
iTunes can synchronize your latest music, movies, podcasts, contacts, calendar events, and photos via Wi-Fi or when you connect iPhone to your Mac or PC. This feature makes it easy to manage your content with the minimum number of keystrokes or mouse clicks.
