Apple is one of the few companies that pays much attention to universal access functions, allowing people with disabilities to use their devices. But all this is not limited to the iOS settings section alone – Apple is testing a new hearing aid that can connect directly to the iPhone.
Cochlear, which specializes in developing tools for people with poor hearing, is helping her in this. As Wired writes, the new implant Cochlear 7 can be controlled directly from the iPhone without additional transmitters. Thanks to this, the user can listen to music and use the iPhone as a microphone.
If before a person with a poor hearing had to use bulky adapters on batteries, now he will get a solution like a wireless headset, with which he can answer a single call with one button. Tim Cook shared an article in his Twitter, calling co-work with Cochlear "a real breakthrough."
One can not but rejoice that Apple is so active in developing solutions for people with disabilities. For the company itself, it is, of course, additional users, but at the same time it makes a significant contribution to the development of technologies in the field of universal access.
