Description John Miller [MSFT] 2016-05-20 14:59:19 UTC

   The tab items of a TabbedPage do not seem to get the AutomationId. 

**Actual Results:**

   Here is the code I think is relevant (needs confirmation) https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/blob/2.2.0/Xamarin.Forms.Platform.iOS/Renderers/TabbedRenderer.cs#L279

**Expected Results:**

   There is a "new UITabBarItem" created, but the AccessibilityIdentifier is not set to w/e the AutomationId is. 

**Build Date & Platform:**

   XF 2.2

**Additional Information:**

   I am not confident I am in the right area of code. I need someone on the Forms team to review and make sure this is understood correctly. The end result is that a tab item should have an AccessibilityIdentifier.
