This second feature that iOS16 comes with will allow you to easily zoom in on objects using only the improved iPhone camera. This is combined with the possibility of detecting automatic doors and recognizing people, utilities that work very well for people with visual disabilities. The objective is that with this tool they can detect objects or obstacles around them more easily. Door detection will be able to inform the person if the door is open or closed.
With this feature you can detect and receive alerts for specific sounds in your own home. This means that users can record and create their own alert sounds, rather than having to settle for pre-programmed sounds. With this fun and easy way to program sounds, hearing impaired users can be alerted to actions happening around them. In this way, they can set sound alerts for their medical devices, or unique doorbells in their homes, or jingles electronics from your appliances.
