It seems like there will be a lot of unannounced features coming with iOS 12 that was not showcased on stage at Apple’s annual developer’s conference. Game-Changing features may be coming for the people who have hearing problems. Cupertino’s upcoming mobile platform will make AirPods compatible with Apple’s Live Listen assistive hearing app. A spokesman for Apple confirmed that At the moment, Live Listen is only compatible with third-party devices like hearing aids or implants, but iOS 12 will make it a lot more accessible. This advantage can also be taken by those who can hear enough and can’t justify purchasing a hearing aid.
Live listen was created by Apple as a part of their iPhone hearing aid program, and users can switch it on in settings under Accessibility on their iPhone. This can be helpful especially in a public place where there are lots of background noise, They simply have to place that iPhone on a table, say during a lecture, or hand it to the person they’re having a conversation with. Live listen will then capture the audio, amplify sounds and beam them to the connected hearing aids or AirPods. Apple’s wireless headsets are already popular as they are, but this could make them a more enticing purchase for the hearing-impaired.
