NAPLES, Fla. – For eight years, John Urquhart just wanted to call his wife.

But the 85-year-old has been legally blind since 2004 and, because of severe frostbite on his fingers, seeing a phone — let alone pressing the buttons — was a challenge.

But for Urquhart and a dozen others in a class at Lighthouse of Collier, Apple’s iPhone has been a game changer. The students, all with different levels of visual impairment, have been learning to use the iPhone to do things ranging from asking Siri for the time to using FaceTime.

And, of course, making phone calls.
