Picker Item. Picker items allow their values to be incremented or decremented by using the Increment or Decrement gesture respectively. The flick does not have to take place on the item. Anywhere in the display will do. VoiceOver indicates a Picker item by ending its announcement with the word "Adjustable." VoiceOver Basics: Lesson 1, Section 7.10
Button. Buttons are found inside an application. An Activate gesture is used to "press" them. They most often open sub screens from within an application, or toggle settings on and off. However, a button can also open new applications,type letters or numbers, or start some function of an application.
VoiceOverEasy.net uses the terms "Activate a button" and "Press a button" interchangeably. This is because both terms are commonly used. They both mean to use an Activate gesture when the button is the Current Item.

Text Field. This item allows entry of text like a name, telephone number, email or comment. If the text field is in an app running on the iOS Device, then the field must be activated first with an Activate gesture. VoiceOver will announce the items name and “text field as the type, and then say “is editing to indicate that’s where the next character will be typed. Text fields on web pages often activate automatically. Text fields on web pages are often described as "Edit Boxes,""Text boxes," or "Input boxes." Examples of text fields on web pages include; username an password fields, search fields, and anywhere else that accepts typed characters.
Formatted text fields can support special text like bold, italicized and underlined. Some can even hold pictures or videos like a web page or Email message. Unformatted fields support only plain upper and lower case letters as well as numbers, signs and punctuation.
