In the modern world, it is almost impossible to find someone who does not own a smartphone. As such, hearing aid manufacturers have begun to adapt and incorporate these devices into their daily functions. The availability of the Bluetooth Low Energy feature has made MFi hearing aids possible, allowing users to manage their hearing aids from their iPhone devices. An up-to-date list of MFi hearing aids can be found on Apple's accessibility website.
One such hearing aid is ReSound LiNX, which was developed relatively quickly due to its digital wireless hearing aid system being based on 2.4 GHz radio frequency transmission rather than the more common near-field magnetic induction (NFMI). Made for iPhone hearing aids are compatible with iPhone 4s and later, iPad Pro, iPad Air and later, iPad (4th generation), iPad mini and later, iPod Touch (5th generation) and later, all running iOS 7 or later. The Philips Hearlink range (new in 2018), the Oticon Opn S range (new in 2011), the Signia Styletto Connect range (new in 201), the Oticon Siya range, the Zerena range by Bernafon, the LiNX Quattro by Resound, the LiNX 3D range by Resound, and the Enzo 3D range by Resuena are all compatible with iPhones.
