Cochlear implant for iPhone launched
August 29, 2017
Cochlear company has launched its first made-for-iPhone cochlear implant to be used with Apple phones.
This will be useful for people who do not use a hearing aid and use cochlear, or inner ear implants.
Users can now use the phone for streaming audio like phone calls, podcasts, and music directly from an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.
Through an app called the Nucleus Smart, users can also control how they hear.
Apple has come up with a lot of options for accessibility for the deaf and hard-of-hearing users.
The company offers more than 50 models of hearing devices that can be linked to an iPhone and give useful settings not available to the basic iPhone user.
