The first cochlear implant designed for the iPhone is now available — 2022

Apple is very focused on improving accessibility for all users and that is why in the middle of this year they closed an agreement with the company Cochlear, focused on the design of cochlear implants, intended for those people who have hearing difficulties due to problems in the cochlea of ​​their ears. As a result of this alliance, a new cochlear implant fully integrated with the iPhone has been launched. The name it has received is Nucleus 7.

This new cochlear implant integrated with the iPhone has arrived in Australia

These implants are essential for those who have hearing problems due to problems in a part of the inner ear, specifically the cochlea. Normally this problem is detected at a very early age or it can also appear later. Fortunately, medicine and biotechnology They have given him a solution with these implants so that a person with this problem can lead a totally normal life and with very good hearing. We are not on a science website and that is why I will not tell how it works, although I would love to, but I encourage you to seek information about Its operation is very interesting.

Then we leave you the promotional video of this new Cochlear implant:

in this design a team of Apple engineers specialized in accessibility has collaborated. This work has resulted in this fully integrated cochlear implant with an iPhone that will allow users listen to music, podcasts, watch videos, make calls and everything we do in our day to day thanks to this Nucleus 7. This is managed by a sound processor that is the soul of this implant. The company has said the following:

The sound processor of this Nucleus 7 is the first to be integrated with an iPhone. This is the smallest and lightest on the market.

This is a game changer for people with hearing loss, opening the door for them to make phone calls, listen to music in high-quality stereo sound, watch videos, and make FaceTime® calls streamed directly to their cochlear implant.

We see how accessibility is a basic point in Apple, something that we greatly appreciate and applaud the development of this type of technology that helps a very good integration of people with any problem.

The characteristics of this are very good and we hope that it will reach all countries and that those who need it , end up enjoying it, because if you see videos of a person who listens for the first time thanks to this implant, surely some tear will fall.

And as, when Apple makes something of ten, we say it, and from here we applaud them and we hope that they will continue working in this direction in terms of accessibility and health.
