I do know that the battery announcement is being spoken. I did it with my 
iPhone 7. It works great in that regard. I haven't messed with the app updates 
yet.

In anticipation of upgrading my iPhone 6 to iOS 10 later this week, I upgraded 
my iTunes for Windows on my Windows 7 PC to the latest version, 12.5.1.21. I am 
using ZoomText Magnifier/Reader almost exclusively in reading mode so be aware 
that my results could vary significantly from those using other screen readers.

 

I wanted to report a couple of positives at least with respect to what ZoomText 
is reading in this latest version. With focus on my iPhone in the Summary 
Settings, I note that the battery percentage charge is now spoken by ZoomText. 
Unfortunately, I had to hover my mouse over the battery picture to get ZoomText 
to speak since tabbing did not cause spoken output of the battery level. I 
don't know if this will be changed for other screen readers but in the version 
12.4.x I was running before upgrading, nothing was spoken for the battery 
charge level whether hovering with the mouse or not.

 

Another difference I noted with this version is in the iTunes Apps Updates 
screen. ZoomText was a bit squirrely in what it announced when not using the 
mouse to place focus on the apps to be updated. When tabbing an using the arrow 
keys, I could visually tell the app having focus because it would enlarge 
slightly but ZoomText didn't speak the app name. When I placed focus on the app 
with the mouse, ZoomText would announce the app name. The next tab would read 
me information about the update including its version number, date, and size 
and none of this was announced by ZoomText in my 12.4.x version.

 

I realize the above is fairly minor but I'm at least a bit encouraged that some 
marginal progress concerning accessibility seems to be being made. I would 
recommend that others try the latest version with your screen readers to see if 
you note any improvements.
