How it works?
You activate the function on your Apple smartphone Hearing (instructions below), and then put it next to the sound source (the phone can be slightly covered with something so that it is not visible) and listen to what they say through AirPods.
It is very convenient if you have hearing problems, or you are, for example, at a lecture away from the teacher (you can put your smartphone closer to him and listen from afar with AirPods). At least for these purposes, the function was developed at Apple:
MFi (Made for iPhone) hearing aids and sound processors, and now AirPods, help you communicate even in noisy environments. Just turn on the feature “Live listening” and bring your iPhone closer to the person you’re talking to. This feature uses the microphone to help you hear what is being said.
But there are other use cases Rumor – and they are no longer so harmless.
If you have AirPods, you can activate the function Hearing and leave your phone in the room where the conversation is taking place and listen to what they are saying from a distance.
Of course, this is illegal – and just morally ugly, so we encourage everyone to use the function Hearing only for its intended purpose.
