By TJT 2001, 20 April, 2016 Forum Braille on Apple Products I am using a phone that is several years old. If I were to purchase a new phone, would input from a braille display be much faster than it is on my current phone? Options Log in or register to post comments Comments braille input Hi. That depends on which model you are currently using and what version of iOS. Certainly, if you have an iPhone 5, you will see dramatic improvements in everything, including braille text input, and even some speed improvements in the 5S. As for the 6, 56S, and SE, those are all about the same.
