Apple today pushed out the iOS / iPadOS 16.2 Developer Preview Beta 2 update, and according to evidence found by 9to5Mac in the beta, Apple is working on a new “Custom Accessibility Mode” for iOS. “
According to Apple, this mode offers a “customizable, efficient way to use your iPhone and iPad,” which should mean users will be able to change some settings to make iOS devices easier to use.
9to5Mac reports that with this new mode, users will be able to make settings to the user interface, such as using larger fonts and choosing which apps are displayed on the home screen. In the screenshots shared by the outlet, you can see how the mode enables things like larger app icons, a large back button, and a simpler user interface in the Messages app.
It’s not known when the mode will actually be available, and none of the current beta updates are available, indicating that the rollout of the feature is still a long way off.
