Last week, Apple® announced the upcoming release of iOS 12, iPhone® XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, and Apple Watch® Series 4. ReSound will verify compatibility of ReSound hearing aids with the new Apple products and with iOS 12 after they are released to the public.
We recommend refraining from installing the new iOS 12 and/or purchasing a new Apple product until ReSound has completed testing. We will update this page confirming compatibility as soon as possible.
Testing confirms this latest iOS update has resolved issues that were reported after the release of iOS 11.4, where iPhone SE users were unable to connect to their hearing aids to stream audio or utilize their ReSound app.
MFi hearing instruments are unable to connect with iPhone SE after Apple’s release of iOS 11.4. We recommend that iPhone SE users stay on iOS 11.3 if they have not updated already. The issue will be fixed with an upcoming iOS release. We are awaiting Apple to confirm the release date and will send out a notification when more information is available.
For all other compatible iPhones and iPads, initial test results with iOS 11.4 show compatibility with ReSound Made for Apple hearing aids. If we do find anything that impacts compatibility, we will update you as soon as possible.
