iOS app login placeholder text

We are developing an iOS app to grab info from our course system. The login page is standard username and password, just two blank fields. Currently they are using only placeholder text in both fields, which is obviously problematic for all users. I hate placeholder text, but can't get them to change as of yet. Is lack of visual labels acceptable for standard login forms?

Is there a way to add hidden labels for VoiceOver in iOS apps? Is there a good solution for other users other than real labels?
