Apple Creates Special Hearing Aids For iPhone And iPad

Apple made hearing aids for iPhones and iPads. These advances could lead to a great increase in the quality of life and ease of use for hearing-impaired Apple device owners.

Apple has worked with top manufacturers to create hearing aids designed specifically for iPhone and iPad. These advanced hearing aids provide outstanding sound quality, offer many helpful features, and are as easy to set up and use as any other Bluetooth device.

You can quickly access the features and settings of your paired hearing aid by triple-clicking the Home button. Glance at the battery status or change the left and right volume, together or separately. And quickly apply your audiologist's environmental presets as you go outdoors or enter noisy locations, like restaurants, without having to rely on additional remotes, stated Apple.

You can now connect what you love through your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and enjoy high-quality sound through hearing aids that work like wireless stereo headphones. Apple's push into making its devices more accessible to the hearing impaired began with 2013's launch of iOS 7, which also introduced the Made for iPhone hearing aid program.

They started working with 2011's iPhone 4S, 2012's fourth-generation iPad and 2013's fifth-generation iPod. Users can also control their hearing aids through an Apple Watch connected to an iPhone. It's part of a broader initiative by Apple, which kicked off last week's MacBook Pro event with a video on accessibility and the launch of a new site dedicated to the issue, according to CNet.

"When we created the Made for iPhone hearing aid program, the key question was 'how do we improve the ability for someone with hearing loss to use an iOS device to do all the things everyone else does, from making phone calls to FaceTime to listening to music and watching movies?" said Sarah Herrlinger, Apple's Senior Manager for global accessibility policy and initiatives.

By this time, Audio streaming to hearing aids is only available for iOS, However, No official word from Google as to yet when they will have their own version available in the market.
