Can you control your iPhone with just your eyes?

Answer: Yes.

Apple unveiled a slew of new accessibility features for its products this week, including eye-tracking for iPhones and iPads, which could help some people with disabilities to better use their devices.

When enabled, the feature uses the phone’s front-facing camera and lets users simply look at the screen to move between various apps and menus. Pausing on an item with your eyes, via a tool Apple calls Dwell Control, selects it. While Apple products already supported eye-tracking with external connected devices, the new feature allows users with disabilities to access the feature without additional hardware.

Other assistive features announced this week include new voice control shortcuts, music haptics for users who are deaf or hard of hearing, and improvements to Apple CarPlay.
