New ‘The Greatest’ Apple Video Highlights Accessibility Features

Within a new 2:21 video posted to YouTube, Apple’s “The Greatest” video takes an intimate look at various users implementing accessibility features on certain products, such as the iPhone and Apple Watch.

For the video description, it says: “At Apple, we believe that accessibility is a human right. Innovative features like door detection, sound recognition, voice control, and more are designed to let you use your devices in the way that best suits your needs.”

Additionally, as pointed out Apple Insider, the video is presented with automatic subtitles, and there is also a different version that comes with an audio description.

The video also includes the song “I am the Greatest (with Marliya Choir)” by Spinifex Gum. The song features Cola Boy and Matthew Whitaker.

Regarding Door Detection, this new feature came along with iOS 16, and our own Jeff Butts provides a better way to implement it. Additionally, in 2022, Apple also introduced new accessibility features for certain products. This includes Live Captions coming to iPhone, iPad, and Mac, as well as a new mirroring feature that allows users to control their Apple Watch using their iPhone. This allows users to use assistive features such as Voice Control and Button Control.

While the video has great emotional appeal, it also does a fantastic job of reminding those who need accessibility features that there are a plethora of options available on Apple devices. Accessibility is a wonderful thing, and this video does a great job of showing how Apple goes to great lengths to make products accessible to everyone.
