Australian company Cochlear launches special iPhone hearing implant with Apple
November 1, 2017
Nucleus 7, the first made for iPhone Cochlear implant launched by Apple with Australian company Cochlear will launch in Australia this week.
The implant can stream audio from a compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch directly to a surgically embedded sound processor.
The implant will soon be available in other countries for customers who have profound hearing loss that can't be dealt with through traditional hearing aids and requires implant technology.
Apple's accessibility engineering team worked with Cochlear to create a new form of Bluetooth low-energy audio that allows the implant to connect to the iPhone without draining too much battery life. Through an iPhone connection, users can watch movies, listen to music, and make calls.
The Nucleus 7 Sound Processor is compatible with a wide range of Apple devices, including the iPhone 5 and later, all iPad Pro models, the iPad mini and later, and the fourth-generation iPad.
