How to use the hearing options in iOS 6 for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch

  • To activate the Accessibility features on your device select Settings + General + Accessibility.

Hearing Aids

  • If you have a supported digital Hearing Aid, you can connect to it by turning on Bluetooth on your phone.
  • Live Listen allows you to use your iPhone as a remote microphone to your hearing aid. Triple-click the home button to access Live Listen.

LED Flash for Alerts

  • Tap to turn On Flash Alerts.

Flash alerts cause the screen to flash when a sound alert is played, and make these audio alerts accessible if you have a hearing impairment.

Mono Audio

  • Tap to turn On Mono Audio.

Mono audio simply means that the left and right earphones play the same audio, without any stereo effect. This can be useful if you have better hearing in one ear than the other as the same sound is sent to both earphones. Without this setting enabled, you may find that certain sounds get sent to one ear or the other which may make some content difficult to understand.
