Accessibility settings on BrowserStack real iOS devices

To make web content accessible to people with a wide range of disabilities, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) provides a set of guidelines for designing and testing websites with a focus on accessibility.

iOS devices provide a number of accessibility features, which you can turn on during device setup, and adjust using the Settings app, as defined in Apple documentation.

Live provides access to select accessibility settings on BrowserStack real iOS devices, to enable accessibility testing of your websites/web apps.
