Re: Does the VoiceOver (iOS) rotor only allow form element navigation on webpages?

From a web perspective, if Safari is surfacing a <button> element via the
UIAccessibility API so that VoiceOver knows how to announce it, and if a
button in a native app is announced the same way so presumably is also
going through the UIAccessibility API, why couldn't the button setting on
the rotor work on a native app?
