It is a well known fact that all Apple products have amazing accessibility features, and that’s one of the reasons why these products are appreciated so much. However, have you wondered why Apple cares so much for accessibility? Why do they invest so much time and money in researching accesibility features? What’s in it for the company?These are some of the questions Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, answers in the videos below. A few months ago, he sat down and had coffee with some YouTubers who use Apple’s accessibility features, and they all, more or less, had the same question – why does Apple care for accessibility? Tim’s response is simple, yet powerful. He explains that accessibility is a human right, and a basic value. The company tries really hard to make its products accessible to everyone, and Apple has never looked at its return on investment on accessibility. Tim goes on to explain that making products accessible is a part of the company’s values, and it will never compromise on it. The goal really is to democratize technology so everyone could create, and solve problems. That’s what Apple’s about.
