While all the buzz surrounds the iPhone 5 announcement, I’m still more excited for the release of iOS 6 on September 20th.  iOS has always had some great accessibility features but one in particular is long awaited: Guided Access.  Check it out here.  Assistive app developers have been longing a simple way to keep their app front and center.  No more accidental clicks, swipes or touches that teleport you someplace else on your iPad.  And for users who have trouble focusing, that extra help from iOS to keep you on track and engaged will really help.
