Apple To Help Make Hearing Aids
The technology giant and danish hearing-aid company GN Resound have developed a new hearing aid that's compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
It's called Linx.
The device syncs wirelessly with the newest Apple mobile devices.
Phone calls, facetime chats, music, movies, turn-by-turn navigation can be streamed directly to the small earpiece.
The hearing aids work like normal when they're not pulling in audio from a smartphone or tablet.
Because the hearing aids are medical devices, they won't be available at your local apple store.
Instead people will have to visit an audiologist.
They run about $3,000.
