Accessibility improvements in Apple iOS 4 for iPhone/iPod Touch

To my great disappointment the screen resolution of my iPod Touch wasn’t affected when I updated it to iOS 4. Not even the 4.1 update fixed that. Sigh. On the other hand, I have found a few accessibility improvements that should make iOS 4 devices easier to use, especially for people who are visually impaired.

Here are a few examples:

Good improvements overall. I wonder when VoiceOver (both iOS and Mac OS X versions) will get full support for WAI-ARIA though.
