Hear phone calls and other audio more clearly on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Made for iPhone hearing aids. After you pair your hearing aid, you can control it with your iOS device.
Use Live Listen, a feature that turns your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch into a remote microphone that sends sound from your environment to your Made for iPhone hearing aids or your AirPods.
The LED flash on your iPhone or iPad Pro can blink when your device is locked and you receive a notification. This can be useful if you don't want to miss a notification while your device is locked.
Real-time text (RTT) phone calls provide instant transmission of a message as you compose it. Transcripts are saved in the call history of the Phone app, and you can upgrade a regular call to RTT.
FaceTime video calls
Every iOS device comes with FaceTime, so you can have video calls with other iOS users wherever they are. And FaceTime's high-quality video and fast frame rate make it ideal for communicating with sign language.
Some video content from the iTunes Store includes alternative audio languages or other accessibility features such as closed captions (CC) and subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing (SDH).
