Designed for users with physical disabilities, this feature uses the front-facing camera to set up and calibrate in seconds, and machine learning helps in navigating through apps. All data used to set up this feature is kept safely on respective devices, and isn’t shared with Apple.

This feature works well in iPadOS and iOS apps, and doesn’t require any additional hardware or accessories.

Users can access additional functions like physical buttons, swipes, and other gestures by using Dwell Control to activate each element and navigate through the elements of an app  solely with their eyes.

We’re continuously pushing the boundaries of technology, and these new features reflect our long-standing commitment to delivering the best possible experience to all of our users”, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook said.
