Re: iPhone versions for testing mobile accessibility

I have performed very little application testing on the Iphone, but I have noticed, that some things work differently on the newer larger screens.

One app I tested, I found that the menus did not stay open when double tapped if voice over was running. If that is an option, try to get both.

Thanks for the quick reply Morten. I agree that the newer phone is more tempting, but I just wondered if we should treat this like other tools -- realizing that not everyone has the latest versions of hardware/software therefore testing on older versions of things. If the accessibility is pretty much the same on both, I will probably request the newer phone.
