UIBarButtonItem expects an image or a title in its constructor. Currently, we do not set the title on the button as it serves no functional purpose if you provide an image. However, we will consider changing this and it will be marked as an enhancement.
Thank you for taking the time to submit this feature request. We like this idea and have added it to our internal feature tracking system.
