Bumping this to say that this is still present 4 years later with iOS 16.5.1 VoiceOver + Safari. 

When encountering a role="switch" element, VoiceOver still calls the element a "checkbox" with a "checked" or "unchecked" state. 

Changing this to announce the element as a "switch" with an "on" or "off" state would bring iOS Safari in line with MacOS Safari, JAWS, NVDA, Narrator, and TalkBack; which all announce the element as such.
